Frequently asked questions
Do I have to be on campus?No. On-campus spaces are provided to HDR students so they have quiet places to study, but you can choose to study from any location that suits your needs. However, when possible we strongly encourage students to regularly meet with their supervisors face-to-face, and this would involve travel to campus. There is also an expectation that HDR students will contribute to TUA’s vibrant research culture by engaging in on-campus activities and events, regularly attending seminars and collaborating with other TUA researchers and HDR students.
Can I get credits for previously completed subjects?No. There is no coursework in HDR degrees which could be credited.
How do I apply?
Complete the Expression of Interest (EOI) and submit to the Higher Degrees team with your supporting documents (listed on the EOI) before the cut-off date. We will review your application and advise you of the next steps.
Please ensure you take the time to complete all sections of the EOI and clearly articulate the need and benefit of your HDR project.
