The Doctor of Philosophy is University of Malaya’s premier research training degree. The pinnacle of academic achievement, the Ph.D, is awarded based on the foundation of the thesis prepared under supervision, resulting in an original and significant contribution, displaying extensive knowledge and comprehension of the subject and field of study.
