Part-Time Students

Prospective students often ask if they can complete a PhD in Computing as a part-time student. Yes, the degree can be completed while working either full or part-time, but students should expect their degree to take additional time.

Part-time students should expect to complete their course work in two to three years, and spend four or five years completing their dissertation.

If you are interested in pursuing your PhD as a part-time student please contact the Program Administrator or Co-directors before you begin the application process. It is important that you apply to the program with a detailed and realistic plan.
