MPhil leading PhD


In order to gain admittance into a Programme, applicants must be sure that they fulfill all of the prerequisites set forth by the AGU. It is a universal mandate that all applicants meet the requirements demand by the university.

  • All applicants must have completed a Bachelor Degree or equivalent in a complementary field of study or must have completed a Masters with a thesis defended. AGU requires students in all of its doctoral programs to demonstrate proficiency in both qualitative and quantitative research methodologies
  • Students admitted into a Ph.D. program at a AGU initially registered for the degree of M.Phil., and then transfer onto the Ph.D. upon successful completion of the first year of study: this will often involve the submission of a dissertation by the student, and possibly an oral examination or presentation made at the Graduate School.
