Professional research development seminar series
Each year, the School of Humanities and Social Sciences holds a seminar series delivered by more senior members of the faculty from across various disciplines.
Each seminar focuses on different aspects of the research process and what’s involved in professional life as a research academic.
The seminars are held at the Melbourne Burwood Campus, with video link availability to a Geelong meeting room.
