Higher Degree Research

Postgraduate research at the University is referred to as higher degree by research (HDR) study. It does not include coursework; rather, the candidate selects a research topic which is of particular relevance to his or her professional and/or personal interests. Students must have completed a degree considered by the University to be equivalent to an Australian Bachelor degree with first class Honours or second class Honours, first division, or have completed a degree equivalent to an Australian Masters degree where at least 50% of the assessment was based on a thesis.

Students must also demonstrate the educational preparation and capacity to pursue a research degree. This may be through their general and professional qualifications. Visit the Graduate School for a full list of requirements for HDR enrolment
