Many students in all disciplines find themselves engaged in hands- on work experience before graduation. This exposes them to life in the real world, the expectations of employers, and gives them the opportunity to see how academic training intersects with practical application. In addition to external internships, the University has its own on- campus working Health Clinic and a Communications Agency where students apply their skills and talents to real brand and marketing challenges from real clients. The University also has a highly professional Law court where virtual cases are tried and mooting competitions held, two replica nursing wards, a physiotherapy studio, pharmacy, nutrition and human movement laboratories. There are design studios for architects, interior and landscape architects, graphic, digital and industrial designers and a well equipped workshop where industrial designers bring their creations to life.

OUR POSTGRADUATE DEGREES ARE RESPECTED AROUND THE WORLD A PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) enables students to complete extensive, independent research under the supervision of an expert academic. The research culminates in a written thesis, which makes a significant contribution to knowledge in the discipline concerned. Masters by Research programs are offered by most faculties. They have the same underlying principles as a PhD program, though the length of the thesis submitted for examination is shorter. They can be stand-alone programs or pathways to a PhD.
