Answer

It takes usually between 2.5 and 5 years.


The PhD would take approximately four years post bachelor's to complete. The actual length of time depends much on how long it takes a student to prepare and defend their dissertation, which is an individual project on a topic of the students choosing with extensive research from an original view point and approved by a designated committee.

The answer to this question varies on what subject you are getting a PHD in. Most PhD courses take about 5-7 years to complete, though this could be shorter and longer depending on what you want it in.

The two postgraduate degrees are a master's degree and a doctorate degree (PhD). It would take 2-3 years to earn a master's degree. After you earn a master's degree, it would take about 4-5 years to earn a PhD. There are some PhD programs that incorporate master's degree work though so you don't have to do a separate degree.

It can take from 5 to10 plus years to earn a PhD in sociology, but I think 7 years about average including coursework, prelims and the dissertation.

One does not earn a PhD in neurology, because it is a medical speciality. Therefore, one goes to medical school after college and thereafter, in internship/residency, specializes in neurology.
