Undertaking Higher Degrees by Research (HDR) develops unique and transferable skills such as the capacity to design and lead a complex project, advanced communications skills and the ability to identify both commercial and entrepreneurship opportunities. 

The Graduate Certificate of Research Management and Communication consolidates these transferable skills in a concurrent postgraduate qualification.

This qualification is ideal for HDR candidates who are looking to formalise the knowledge and capabilities they develop during their HDR degree to become more employable across a range of industries in research, project management, compliance, education and more.

Students choose from a range of units that cover outreach, engagement, ethics, entrepreneurship, management and communications as well as the opportunity for extended professional placements. The Graduate Certificate in Research Management and Communication is undertaken concurrently with a Masters by Thesis, Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) or a Professional Doctorate (during the thesis component).
