Options for registration for Postgraduate research come in two forms. Internally or externally funded projects are publicly advertised and candidates are selected through an evaluation process typically consisting of application and interview. More information on generic sources of funding available for postgraduate study at CIT can be accessed here.
Self funded research projects on the other hand involve a different process starting with the candidate’s identification of appropriate supervisors. This is followed by the submission of a Research Project Description which is developed further through a mentoring process producing a formal research proposal and application that is then submitted for postgraduate student registration. Postgraduate research degrees may be completed in a minmum of 21 calendar months.
This website aims to assist potential candidates through the above processes in a structured step-by-step way offering advice in terms of: identifying appropriate supervisors that meet the requirements of your project proposal; by offering an informal mentoring process that assists you with the development of your formal proposal; and assisting you through the formal application process.
