  • CRICOS code: 111523E

What will I study?


Typically taken over 3.5 years full time (part time available), you’ll be working independently on an innovative research project that makes a distinct contribution to knowledge in your field. The Doctor of Philosophy – Indigenous Knowledge gives you unparalleled flexibility with how you present your work, with four standard thesis options available:

  • An 80,000-word thesis
  • A 60,000-word thesis with a minor folio of work
  • A 40,000-word thesis with a medium folio of work
  • A 20,000-word thesis with a major folio of work.

All thesis outputs, including folio content, will accommodate research engagements with Indigenous knowledge practices. There is no compulsory coursework, though relevant coursework subjects may be taken with approval.

You'll meet with a supervisory panel at regular intervals to review progress towards your research outputs, and you’ll engage with a learning community to provide you with support and encouragement throughout the PhD program.
