HDR Conference and Support funds
It’s important to plan to make the best use of the available amounts of research funds. The confirmation process is going to be revised soon to require that you include an expenditure plan.
You need to think about several issues and discuss them with your supervisor:
- Training needs
- Data collection costs or survey costs
- Specialist software
- Conference attendance
- Support grant, and Conference grants information
Neil Archbold Travel Award 2016 - Applications are now open, and close on 31 July.

Minimising harm from prolonged sitting
Do you suffer from a muscle soreness from hours of sitting at the computer?
A physiotherapy service is offered at the Melbourne Burwood Campus by Sophie Parrot from Back in Motion. Sophie's interests include musculoskeletal injuries and dry needling. If you not located at or near the Melbourne Burwood Campus, then a Deakin Medical Centre doctor will be able to refer you to a physiotherapist in your area.
- Private fees apply and a discount is available for students.
- HICAPS claiming is available.
- All Deakin University staff and students are offered a FREE Initial Assessment – to assess any pain you may have, or discuss your health goals
- Payment for any treatment is processed on site (EFT, C/Card, HICAPS only). Private Health insurance extras cover can be used therefore only a small fee may be required.
All HDR rooms have helpful wall posters showing how to set up your workstation and stretch exercises – so take a work break and find out more. Please email us if you’d like a copy.
Thermal Comfort – Buildings EA, EC
Deakin University recommends that heating temperatures should only be set at 20–24 Celsius. You may need to adjust your clothing layers if you still feel cold. Please be aware that hot, stuffy rooms are not conducive to study, and contribute to illness through dehydration.
If you are the last to leave a room, please turn Off the A/C Unit. Thank you for your co-operation.
Campus Security Reminder
Be aware of your personal safety on campus and secure your belongings in Buildings EA and EC. Occasionally there are reports of theft, ‘borrowing’ of items from desk spaces allocated to Full time, On Campus students, and unfamiliar login details on computers.
Secure personal items in your lockable cupboards as Deakin cannot take responsibility for loss or damage.
Please remember that your shared office space is a work environment, and is provided for enrolled research students only. Please do not let other people into these rooms, and do not let visitors use other student’s desks.
If you have friends and family who accompany you on weekends, you can let them into the lunch area Room EA 2.25. However, all visitors should keep noise down to a minimum and you will be responsible for leaving this area clean and tidy. Failure to keep the area clean and any noise problems will jeopardise your access to this space.
Be considerate of your colleagues and our Deakin Law School neighbours on Level 1.
