PhD Topics and Projects

The field of higher education is complex and includes a vast range of broad areas such as teaching and learning studies, policy studies, management studies, historical studies and so on. Applicants are invited to develop their own potential areas of study and are welcome to contact us for advice and support as they do so. The wide range of interests and areas of expertise of the supervisors ensures that students can be well matched to work with someone who has knowledge of and interest in the student’s chosen topic. 

At present we have PhD scholars researching in the following areas:

  • Quality Assurance in Higher Education
  • Curriculum structures
  • Internationalization of Higher Education/Globalization of Higher Education
  • Reform in Higher Education in an era of neoliberalism
  • Epistemological access to higher education
