An American PhD usually takes 4-7 years to complete. Programmes normally take place within specialist university graduate skills and are more extensive than in Europe. Students begin with one or two years of coursework and examinations to develop a grounding in their subject before moving on to independent research on their doctoral thesis. This is then submitted for an oral ‘viva voce’ exam.
