The Independent / External PHD Study Mode is designed for candidates who presently hold an academic research background and wish to complete fully independent, non-supervised studies as an external student. Independent / External study mode students enjoy many of the same benefits and resources of the standard mode students save for the fact that they complete the research and writing of the manuscript in a self-managed fashion.
Candidates choosing this study mode are self-motivated, research minded and extremely well disciplined with a strong sense of academics. The study mode offers the candidate the ability to coordinate with an academic adviser but otherwise provides the candidate with full independence to complete their manuscript under their own schedule while availing themselves of the research resources of the university. Candidates should hold a research based degree as a prerequisite along with appropriate history of accomplishment within academic, personal and professional life.
