SMU PhD students undertake high-quality research during their PhD studies. They are recognised for their outstanding research achievements such as by receiving prestigious awards.

Our students also have opportunities to deepen their research expertise by collaborating with academics from within and outside the SMU community. Over the years, they have published papers which have contributed towards the pool of academic knowledge. Some of their papers have achieved international recognition through awards.

Our students’ PhD journey culminates with a completed written dissertation report. To have a better understanding of our students’ dissertation research, a repository of dissertation papers is also available.
