Massey’s Doctor of Philosophy is a prestigious research qualification essential for a rewarding academic career in any research institution or university. It’s the highest supervised degree Massey University offers.
To do a PhD you need to have a passion for your subject, and pursue it to the limit.
The degree is awarded for a thesis that demonstrates the candidate's ability to carry out independent and original research that provides a significant contribution to the knowledge and understanding of a field of study.
Candidates can complete a thesis with publications or a monograph, depending on the supervisor’s advice. The programme is expected to be completed within three to four years full-time or six years part-time.
Opportunities for research and career development
PhD candidates can access the UK Vitae platform which is a world leader in supporting the professional development of researchers. Massey is the only New Zealand university that subscribes to Vitae.
We support and provide training for all candidates to participate in the annual university 3MT (Three-Minute Thesis) competition and offer lucrative prize money for the winners.
Workshops to hone your skills
Massey offers a wide range of workshops to PhD candidates.
Accessible lecturers and supervisors
Massey University academic staff provide quality and caring supervision and are easily accessible. We limit our PhD enrolments to high-achieving candidates, so you’ll receive close attention and regular interaction with staff. You’ll have at least two supervisors, allowing you to benefit from a range of expertise.
Great connections and facilities
Massey has close relationships with leading research organisations worldwide, and we regularly host visiting researchers and experts in many fields.
You’ll have access to excellent research facilities and equipment, and benefit from Massey’s connections with industry.
People and Planning
The College of Humanities and Social Sciences has a strong research tradition and profile, representing a diverse range of themes, research methods and groups, from individual researchers to major research teams and centres.
Research in the School of People and Planning is international and includes the Pacific, South and South East Asia, the Middle East and Europe as well as New Zealand. The scale of our work ranges from micro to global level.
We draw on a wide range of social science theories and methodologies. Historical methods also inform much of our work.
As well as empirical work involving data analysis, some of us do "ideas work". Here we write about theories and concepts, and use these to better understand the complex social and natural worlds that we inhabit.
Enrolment for a PhD is available to candidates who have completed a Bachelors or Masters degree with First Class Honours or Second Class Honours (Division I), or those who hold comparable qualifications.
