It is recommended that you follow the Graduate Research School Guidelines on presentation of your thesis.

'3.1 Word length

Differences in disciplines and the type of thesis will influence the appropriate word limit for a thesis. The following word limits exemplify a typical range:

a. PhD: 80,000–100,000 words

b. Professional doctorates: 50,000–75,000

c. PhD in the Faculty of Business: 50,000–70,000

d. Masters by research: 40,000–50,000

e. Exegesis/dissertation to accompany a creative work: 30,000'

And also seek advice from your supervisor.

Hope this helps.
