Exemption from this criterion may be granted for reasons occurring after the date of the Viva Voce examination (defence) such as: maternity or paternity leave, illness, family commitments, etc. You must be able to engage critically and creatively with relevant theoretical and conceptual frameworks within your discipline and beyond. You should have strong communication and organisational skills with a passionate interest and expertise in carrying out research.
