In music (including composition and performance), a PhD thesis may take the form of performance and/or corpus of creative work plus a dissertation that aims to address, elucidate and contextualise the work.
The PhD requires a minimum of three years full-time study (six years part-time). PhD graduate researchers become part of an active research culture which includes school based seminars, Faculty research symposia and opportunities for funding to attend national and international conferences, symposia, performances, exhibitions, and other events at which they present research or creative work.
The PhD is taught and administered within the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music and is overseen by the Melbourne School of Graduate Research at the University of Melbourne.
