Higher degree by research Orientation

The Orientation Session for higher degree by research (HDR) students (doctoral and masters by research) sets the scene for research study at Curtin and includes hints for surviving your first year and beyond.

We recommend you also attend other activities being offered around the university so you get familiar with the campus, your specific school/department and key areas such as the library.

HDR students Orientation Semester 1 2022

These sessions include presentations from the Dean, Graduate Studies, experienced supervisors, the Library, Curtin Careers, Employment, and Leadership; the Curtin Institute for Computation; and the Student Guild (the Postgraduate Students’ Committee).

There are many areas across Curtin that provide services and support to you and your supervisor, including the Graduate Research School (GRS). The GRS administers HDR related policies, procedures and guidelines.
