Minimum resources for research degree students

It is a requirement at Deakin that all research students be provided with the resources they need to undertake their project. This principle is embodied in the Higher Degrees by Research (HDR) Admission, Selection and Enrolment procedure which states that faculties and institutes should only admit candidates if the necessary resources and facilities can be provided.
