Starting your PhD
Applications for postgraduate research are accepted all year round. Once you’re accepted and commence your candidature at the University of Sydney there are mandatory requirements and expected milestones. The University of Sydney expects PhD candidates to complete within 3 years, with a maximum time for completion of 4 years (full time). If you experience unexpected delays during your candidature you may request an extension.
Apart from the research and writing there is a lot to tick off, particularly in the probation period or first year.
