  • The Natural Sciences and Science Education (NSSE) Academic Group has a sizeable group of local and international graduate students engaged in diverse research fields in the natural sciences and science education. Full-time and part-time students pursue Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees by Research, supervised by NSSE academic staff, as well as professors from other academic groups or even external collaborators.

    If you are interested in pursuing a higher degree by research, please refer to Office of Graduate Studies and Professional Learning for information on NIE's Higher Degree by Research Programme, research scholarships, application procedures and deadlines.
