It is recognized that the thesis will be an outgrowth of the report, and that it may deviate in certain ways from the topic outlined in the report. For this reason, copies of the proposals are not made publicly available, but are kept on file.

Written in the spoken tongue : reforming diglossia in China, 1840-1940

The attachment of spanish nouns to their grammatical gender

In 2012, during my second year in BSc. Hons Chemistry course, I joined my first one year long research project "Computational Modelling of Phytoregulatory Profile of some Nanoparticles (May,2012 to May,2013) under Dr. Sushma Moitra (Principal Investigator). The project was sponsored by the University of Delhi under the Innovation Project Scheme.

My journey with chemistry started from simple high school experiments which were limited to Bunsen burners, pH stripes or a few test tubes. Now that I am about to finish my masters with much more knowledge about the world of chemistry, I still feel the same excitement that I felt back then. The subject has never failed to amaze me, right from my days of high school to even today. In 2011, I passed class 12th with 94.33 marks and was among the top 1% students of ISC (Indian School Certificate) Board. I received the prestigious INSPIRE (Innovation in Science Pursuit for Inspired Research) Scholarship. To pursue a career in basic sciences, I joined three year BSc. (Hons.) Chemistry programme at Miranda House College of University of Delhi, one of the most prestigious institutions in India for undergraduate studies and research in pure sciences.


Thesis, Department of Linguistics, The University of Sydney.

The department requires that applicants to the M.S. program have completed an undergraduate program in Computer Science, or taken the following prerequisite courses for the undergraduate degree:

We suggest 4 study tracks for students in the MSCS program

All applicants are required to take the aptitude part of the GRE examination (verbal, analytic and mathematical reasoning sections).

Deixis and anaphora in the Homeric dialect

While the writing of the thesis is overseen by a supervisory committee of three faculty members, students are expected to present their work to the department at large on a regular basis. The first presentation is the thesis proposal, and is done before April 15 of the third year. Subsequently, students are expected to give a presentation at least once per year until the thesis is completed. With the consent of the supervisory committee, a student may choose not to make a presentation during the final stages of writing.

If a student’s progress is deemed to be unsatisfactory by the supervisory committee, it may require the student to make another presentation within three months. If this second presentation is not satisfactory, the student will not be permitted to continue in the program.

The thesis must show “the results of original investigation, conducted by the candidate, on the approved topic from the major field. The thesis shall constitute a significant contribution to the knowledge of the field and must be based on research conducted while registered for the Ph.D. program.” (p. 59, SGS 2008/2009 Calendar)

Warning! A student can register for as many as 15 credits without special permission. A student wishing to take more than 15 credits must get a letter of approval from the Computer Science graduate director, and then take it to ask for special permission from the School of Graduate Studies (Barbara Pleva, ext. 7449). However, the School of Graduate Studies will discourage a student from taking more than 18 credits and will not allow, under any circumstances, a student to take more than 20 credits. A student who does not comply with this rule is likely to be deregistered by the School of Graduate Studies without prior notice.
