ECU’s Graduate Research School supports higher degree researchers by providing training, resources, peer-to-peer support, networking opportunities and social events to honours, masters and doctoral candidates and their supervisors.
The Graduate Research School provides services and support through three key areas:
- Research student support co-ordinators and research advisers;
- Research training and resources, including the Graduate Research Induction Program (GRIP) and
- The SOAR Centre
GRS promotes high quality in research programs and outcomes through the development of sound policies and procedures and information. The GRS also fosters good practice in supervision through the provision of training and compliance procedures for supervisory staff.
GRS also works collaboratively with other Western Australian graduate schools to provide training and industry placement opportunities. The Advancing Western Australian Research Education (AWARE) network organises and facilitates the iPREP WA program, ResBaz conference and other joint initiatives.

Admissions, Scholarships, Research Assessments and other administrative matters are dealt with in Student Administration. While Student Administration update your records for your candidature, the Coordinator(s) Research Student Support (CRSS) in the Graduate Research School monitors your supervision and progress.
Student Life also provides assistance with housing, financial aid, language and learning skills, counselling, careers and employment, disability liaison and health services. A catalogue of services available to all students can be accessed through the student portal. Access to the student/staff portal is on the ECU homepage.
