OPEN & DISTANCE LEARNING (ODL)

  • The ODL (Open & Distance Learning) PhD programmes are designed to address the theoretical, practical and scientific skills and contribute towards new and meaningful knowledge in their field of expertise.
  • ODL allows students to learn anytime, anywhere at their own pace - this power of freedom has ignited more interest & excitement in learning.
  • Students will reinforce their independent learning skills, as well as demonstrate their ability to produce a professional document.
  • The delivery will consist of online meetings and consultation through Microsoft Teams, coupled with Asynchronous learning materials on Moodle.
  • There is an option to undertake additional research workshops organised jointly by Graduate School of Technology and Graduate School of Business.
  • Students must participate in online research seminars/colloquiums/conferences.
  • For PhD in Computing/ Technology, students are required to publish 1 journal article (indexed) as a requirement for the PhD award.
  • Assessment of the fundamental knowledge is carried out through assessment of the students’ performance based on oral and written assessment. The final assessment is the viva voce and the dissertation.
  • Open Distance Learning (ODL) PhD students at APU will need to take the Research Methods Modules and subsequently produce the Dissertation.
