Our program was revised extensively in 2013 for providing Ph. D. students of ARE with a firm foundation in soil science, plant nutrition and agriculture environment science along with rigorous training in research methodology.

Training Objects

 The Ph. D. students of ARE should master the basic theory and specialized knowledge of the discipline, should grasp some knowledge of the related discipline and the advanced scientific methods, should understand the developing direction and hot topics of the discipline in the world, and should have the ability to perform scientific researches, solve practical problems, and get creative achievement in science and technology independently.

Fields of Study and Research

  •  Soil Science

  •  Plant Nutrition

  •  Environmental Science for Agriculture

Program duration

 In principle, Ph. D. students should complete the whole Doctoral Training Program in FAFU in a full-time way. For part-time students, the degree courses and thesis defense should be completed in FAFU, and the total time of course study and scientific research should be no less than 1.5 years. In general, full-time and part-time students should fulfill their course study and Ph.D thesis within 3 and 4 years, respectively. Students who are selected and funded by excellent doctoral foundation can extend their study periods appropriately. Students who cannot complete his study on schedule due to impersonal causes can apply for prolongating the study period. However, students should not complete their course requirements and research projects for more than 7 years.  

Supervisor or doctoral guidance
