VUT Research’s Submission & Extension Guidelines
The postgraduate courses that are offered at VUT are emphasized by the intense levels of research they require in order to be completed on time and at a high standard. Postgraduate research requires strict time management skills on part of the student as there are many hours involved in gathering information, evaluating the data and then reporting back on it. Postgraduate research also needs to be done by a student who is independent and who has the drive to complete this incredibly formidable task they have set for themselves. We believe that a postgraduate degree shows a student’s dedication to a particular field, and also shows their discipline in working hard and their knowledge of a particular subject. These courses require the utmost perseverance and commitment from the students if they are to complete the course within the required time. The minimum required time to complete the course will be one year and the maximum time will be 4 years for Masters and 5 years for Doctorate studies. A student has to register each year for the duration of study of the Higher Degree.
