As early as possible in your candidature you must attend HDR Orientation, which is a requirement for all candidates.
One of the most important aspects of your candidature discussed at Orientation is setting up peer support networks, especially for students who are studying their degrees in isolation. We strongly encourage you to form a group that meets regularly. The main benefits are to support each other on your postgraduate research journey, to maintain accountability to your research goals, to get support for publication, and to maintain passion and interest in your research.
Orientation is held twice year in February/March and August. For more information please contact theGraduate School staff.
