  • A candidate will be considered for admission into the PhD in Statistics degree programme if he/she is having a Master of Science degree in Pure or Applied Statistics from NUST or an equivalent qualification in a related discipline from a recognised institution at NQF Level 9 with evidence of a supervised research. Candidates will be required to submit a concept paper on their proposed research areas and may be required to attend a pre-selection interview at the discretion of the Faculty Research Committee (FRC) to ascertain their competencies for independent research in a specialised area of Statistics and its applications.
    The Higher Degrees Committee (HDC) will approve the final selection and admission of the candidates in accordance with the regulations as specified by the Rules for Postgraduate Studies of NUST. Hence, registration prior to the approval of a research proposal is provisional and will be made official only when the proposal is approved by the HDC. These procedures will be fully explained to each prospective student during his/her selection interview.
