Fast-track to PhD

The Fast-track option is to support students who are in a Master’s program, have shown strong research potential, and intend to do a PhD. The Fast-track option allows students to enter the PhD program without finishing the Master’s requirements including the thesis. Discuss this option with your supervisor if you are doing a Master's.
