Default Study Permit - unclear on passport validity

I need to apply for a study permit for a 5 year PhD. I have 2 years left on my passport - the application simply states a valid passport is required. Do i need to get a new passport that would accommodate a 5 yr permit or can i just go ahead and apply with my current passport and accept that i would have to renew both passport and permit after 2 years? It would save a lot of time and stress if i didn't have to get a new passport as well!!!

many thanks

Apply now, get 2 year study permit, apply for extension with new passport prior to expiry of old passport and study permit.
