These are programs to support you in pursuing an academic career, with a specific focus on research capability.
Instats seminars offer foundational and cutting-edge content delivered by leading experts. Their live-streaming and on-demand seminars can be taken individually or as structured courses to provide you with the breadth and depth of knowledge you need.
If live sessions aren’t suitable for you, then try their on-demand seminars which offer a flexible and affordable learning option. After registering, you can activate your 30-day enrolment anytime. On-demand seminars offer all the expertise you need when you need it, including recorded tutorials, skill challenges, and activities.

As a new research student, the very first step is to identify all the possible risks or hazards in your research, and to understand your responsibilities. Before you apply for Milestone 1 (and ethics approval after that), you must first complete the Research Initiation Guide (RIG) to identify any risks and hazards associated with your research. To learn more about your responsibilities as a researcher, visit research ethics and safety.
Academic Integrity is at the heart of everything you do as a research student at Curtin. You are part of an academic community and are asked to uphold the University’s Code of Conduct, principles of academic integrity, and Curtin’s five core values of integrity, respect, courage, excellence and impact during your studies. See Academic Integrity to learn more.
