Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 28, No. 2. 1965.
Course regulations were enacted to replace the statutes of the University of New Zealand for the degrees of Doctor of Literature, Doctor of Music, and Doctor of Science.
New course regulations were approved for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. Clauses are included to enable a candidate to transfer from a PhD course to a Master's course. There is also express power to terminate the registration of a candidate making insufficient academic progress. The regulations require that the thesis shall represent an integrated report of a piece of research. It may consist of either published material or unpublished material, or a combination of both, except that a thesis presented in the Faculty of Arts may not consist solely of previously published work.
