To complete Doctoral studies successfully, candidates require high-level research and advanced research competencies. ARC offers a Doctoral Research Support Programme which provides a series of services designed to support Doctoral students in all fields of study and from all universities in their research-related activities. Tailor made individual research support from academics of high repute is offered to provide personal guidance at all stages of Doctoral research for each candidate requiring support.
