Research and Higher Degrees Office
The Research and Higher Degrees Office and its staff support an extensive research program for higher degree students and research staff in the Faculty. The Faculty has a number of research strengths, such as education, social and community studies and research in communications and the creative arts. Researchers in these fields are affiliated with research centres that provide infrastructure to support researchers and they welcome honours and postgraduate student members.
The Faculty offers honours and postgraduate programs across most of our discipline areas. We welcome students as members of our research communities and support newcomers through our active research training scheme and through mentoring and networking programs. The Schools provide excellent support and study facilities for postgraduate students and have dedicated and approachable staff members to coordinate their honours, masters and doctoral programs. Research students can be confident that they will receive first class support, career-building research training and excellent research opportunities. Graduate and postgraduate study offers significant benefits to the student, Faculty, the University and the wider community and helps generate new knowledge and creativity. Our Faculty includes students from all over the world and we celebrate the diversity of perspectives and creativity that this inclusivity brings.
Our research addresses questions, problems and challenges grounded in everyday life, and actively engages with service to the community, the professions and enterprise.
