Support for research students
All research students should participate in the Higher Degrees by Research induction sessions and workshop series .

Research Coursework Units
The coursework component of our PhD program consists of between three and six units across the first two trimesters of candidature; with a specific program of coursework for each discipline.
Managing research data
Research data are broadly defined as all data created by researchers in the course of their work. Research materials include, but are not limited to, physical samples, photographs, written or audio-visual recordings, artwork, questionnaires or other instruments, fieldwork notes, and other items which are either the sources of data or themselves constitute data in a research project.
Research data management includes all the activities associated with data other than using the data including data storage, backup, organisation, archival, sharing or publishing, security and collaboration.
