If you’re searching for a thesis topic, you have to ask yourself, what am I obsessed with?

Do you want to cure cancer, dissect Great Expectations, or save an endangered frog? Do you hunt down rare black and white films to watch, or do you spend a lot of time boring your friends with facts about the Russian Revolution?

What are you truly passionate about?

A PhD lets you completely nerd-out and absorb yourself in your passion. And at the end of it, you’re a Doctor…and a true expert on your topic.

 And there are practically no limits to what you can write a thesis on.

There are studies on fruit bat sexual encounters, studies on chickens’ preferences for beautiful people, and studies on whether Harry Potter is a metaphor for Jesus. The range of topics is only limited by your imagination.

A PhD is all about exploring your true interests.

The important thing is to choose a topic you’re obsessed with, take a deep breath, and start your journey.

And the best place to do that is the University of Tasmania. Our University is research-intensive and is ranked in the top 2 per cent of universities world-wide (Academic Ranking of World Universities 2016).

In 2017 the University of Tasmania rose to 313 in the 2016 QS World University Rankings 2018. And this year we have also ranked amongst the best in the world for academic reputation and research impact across a number of subject areas (QS World University Rankings by Subject 2017).

We’ll be there with you every step of the way, until that amazing day you accept your doctorate on stage, and get the title of Doctor.

Once you have a doctorate, you can become an academic, a leader in your profession, educate others, or even continue your research with post-doctoral study.

So why not start your passion project and embrace your inner nerd? You might just change the world with your expertise…and you’ll definitely change yourself.
