Postgraduate Studies


The Department of Physics at St. Augustine offers opportunities for postgraduate studies leading to MPhil and PhD degrees by research and thesis.
Normally all students register for an MPhil degree but after a year it is possible to upgrade one’s registration to a PhD degree on the recommendation of the supervisor and the approval of the Board for Higher degrees.
The minimum qualification for admission to the MPhil programme is a BSc General Honours degree in Physics (minimum GPA 3.0) or its equivalent from an approved University.
A candidate admitted for postgraduate studies with a Pass or a Lower Second Bachelor’s degree or equivalent is normally required to take a qualifying examination by the end of the first year. Passing of the qualifying examination is a prerequisite for the continuation of postgraduate studies and submission of thesis
