· Regular Course of Study – in which Ph.D. studies begin upon completion of a Master's degree program with thesis.
· Direct Course of Study – intended for outstanding students who are deemed capable of completing an extensive research work upon completion of their Bachelor's degree, and within six years from the commencement of their Ph.D. studies.
· Combined Course of Study – this track enables eligible students to combine two years of study for a Master's degree with an additional four years of study within the framework of the Ph.D. program.
Outstanding students who have completed their studies for a Master's degree without a thesis have the option of writing an equivalent assignment within the framework of the Ph.D. studies, over a period of one year, and then continuing with the Regular Course of Study for a Ph.D. degree. The continuation of studies is conditional upon the student receiving a grade of 86 or higher on the research work submitted in the first year.
