Support for research Staff and Students
The Faculty of Business and Law has a strong commitment to providing both staff and students with the support they need to undertake their research activities.
Research and Higher Degrees Office
We offer an enhanced learning experience for research students through our Faculty's Research and Higher Degrees Office, with the aim of developing student's skills and competencies through a high level of industry involvement and consultation.
The Office oversees the Faculty's research activities and research students. This includes support from the Faculty’s academic writing consultant, Dr John Hall.
Research students and staff also have access to an abundance of resources and guidance via the University’s Research Intranet.
This website introduces our Graduate Research School, a service centre that supports and develops research students through face-to-face and online training, mentoring, seminars, academic events and social activities.
The Research Intranet also features the Office of Research and Innovation, a centre that supports and advises research staff on issues like research ethics, commercialisation and funding opportunities, and provides professional development opportunities.
ECU has a commitment to ensure the conduct of ethical research by staff and students.
Ethics is important to ensure:
- the humane care of animals used for scientific purposes, including teaching; and
- protection of the welfare and the rights of human participants.
Ethics approval protects participants (human or animal), the researcher, the University and the community in general. Ethics advice and support for students and staff is provided by the Office of Research and Innovation.
