Abstract

First paragraph: A PhD is a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and it sits proudly at the top of the ladder as one of the highest academic awards that can be given to an individual – a unique academic qualification1. A doctorate requires a student to have successfully completed a defined programme of work in a particular field of study and requires intense intellectual effort (Park, 2007). The award of a doctorate generally consists of a research project, each student must present results from their research to the faculty in a lengthy formal document called a dissertation (thesis), and defend their work with an oral (viva) examination.
