Program Overview


Note: The Gateway program is currently closed to new applicants for the coming year. We are updating our application procedures for the following year and will post new information on the How to Apply page as soon as it is available.


Doctoral students can move through the Gateway PhD program on a part-time basis. The expected duration for completing the part-time PhD program is six years, including 24 months of provisional registration. However, the doctoral program is flexible and can be completed in a minimum of 48 months and a maximum of 96 months, including 24 months of provisional registration. Assessment for the doctoral award is based on a program of supervised research and investigation, culminating in a dissertation.

Current students in the Gateway PhD program are enrolled at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and affiliated with the Information Systems research group within the Science and Engineering Faculty.
