Higher degrees by research

While many organisations engage in research, universities have a unique responsibility to provide research training. Higher degree by research programs encourage the development of independent research skills in candidates. These skills include the ability to formulate a significant research problem, the ability to relate the research to the broader framework of knowledge in the area, and the mastery of appropriate skills to tackle the problem. The results of the research are usually incorporated into a thesis which is submitted for examination.
