Workshops and additional training

As a research student, depending on your faculty or school you will be required to complete some training modules or units of study as part of your degree. There are also a range of workshops and training opportunities available to help you develop your research and writing skills.

Postgraduate essentials

If you are a new higher degree by research student, the Postgraduate Essentials resource provides guidance on starting your research degree.

The resource is available by logging in to Canvas.

The Open Learning Environment

The Open Learning Environment (OLE) is a collection of short units of study that are available to all students. 5000-level units are designed specifically to support HDR students to develop research skills and project manage their research. You can take as many zero credit point OLE units as you like for free and complete them at your convenience.

Research skills development

The Learning Hub (Academic Language and Learning) workshops runs practical workshops designed to help you in your initial stages of research.

You can also find information about reading more efficiently, thinking analytically, improving the style and structure of your academic writing and using evidence.

The Library offers a broad range of research support including information, learning tools and one-on-one consultations with an Academic Liaison Librarian.

Career development

You can access support programs in research career planning, networking and the development of research skills through the Talent and Organisational Development team.
