This Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) program at the Asia-Pacific College of Diplomacy at the ANU targets candidates with considerable experience (at least a decade) in the practice of diplomacy. It provides these candidates with specialised, rigorous academic and research training, in order to equip them to contribute at the highest level, whether in Australia, our region or globally, to policy formulation and academic scholarship in the field of diplomacy, foreign policy and international affairs. The program aims to produce doctoral scholars who connect the most important academic insights of the discipline of diplomatic studies with the most important policy developments in the practice of diplomacy.

    This is a three-year research-focused doctoral program. Candidates complete one year of coursework in the theory, practice and research of diplomacy. In the remainder of their program candidates produce significant and original research outcomes culminating in a thesis of no more than 100,000 words

    The Asia-Pacific College of Diplomacy (APCD) promotes world-class research, teaching, and training in transnational diplomacy. While our outlook is global, we pay particular attention to the new dynamics arising from the shift in the distribution of power to the Asia-Pacific region. 



    Our graduates enjoy successful and diverse careers in policymaking, law and research.

    They are based in Australia and overseas, working in government, non-government and not-for-profit organisations, international intergovernmental organisations like the UN, and at world-leading universities and think tanks.  Alumni remain closely connected with the RegNet community following the completion of their degree.
