If you're currently enrolled in a Masters (by Research) or another doctorate, you can apply to transfer your degree to a PhD.
- Transferring your degree only applies to students wishing to move from Masters (by Research) or other doctorates to a PhD.
- It's best that you apply within the first six to 12 months of candidature.
- Whenever you transfer or convert from one graduate research degree to another, it is considered a continuation of your studies, and any candidature time you have already completed will be credited in your new course.
Transfer to another degree (not a PhD)
If you're seeking to transfer your degree from PhD to MPhil or another research doctorate or from MPhil to Masters (by Research), see transferring your degree.
