Higher Degree Research (HDR)
Our purpose is to assist candidates in making their HDR learning experience positive and productive. The Arts HDR Office staff is available to provide advice to HDR candidates on any administrative matter relating to their research training. We administer the full student cycle of research degrees for domestic and international students, and provide advice on:
- HDR Rules, Policies and Guidelines
- administrative matters relating your candidature, such as changing supervisors, applying for leave of absence, changing to/from part/full time, and transferring your degree to another department or faculty.
After the initial enrolment, all HDR transactions, including forms and documents, are first processed by the Arts HDR Office, before being forwarded to the University Higher Degree Research Office (HDRO) or to other University departments.
