Information for faculty research students
Higher Degree by Research (HDR) programs enable you to develop independent research skills and are for students who want to pursue their own theories and ideas at a high conceptual level.
The skills developed as part of a research degree include the ability to formulate a significant research problem, relate the research to the broader framework of knowledge in the chosen area, and master appropriate skills to solve a problem. Research results are incorporated into a thesis, and this is submitted for examination.
Research-level study can lead to a research or academic career and is highly valued in the workplace.
