What is graduate research?

Graduate research is sometimes called 'postgraduate research' or 'higher degree research' and usually takes the form of a doctorate (PhD) or Master's by research (MPhil).Jessica Taft

It involves a program of study for postgraduate students where the central focus is an original research project, or series of projects, conducted with the guidance of expert supervisors.

Traditionally, graduate research has been the pathway into academia and we continue to provide strong and specialised support for those students seeking a research career within higher education.

However, our vision for graduate research extends beyond the academy and our innovative programs are also aimed at developing students to be the future leaders of industry, government and the wider community.
