Postgraduate research

Support and opportunities for postgraduate research students

From finding supervisors to organising retreats and seminars, we work closely with our Higher Degree Research (HDR) students to ensure they succeed in their Southeast Asia-related projects.

We support students undertaking higher degree research by:

  • arranging seminars and social functions for postgraduate students from Southeast Asia and students working on cases about the region
  • helping identify a suitable supervisor for research projects on Southeast Asia
  • supporting acquisition of a Southeast Asian language for use in research.

Join our postgraduate retreat

Each year, we invite postgraduate students working on topics related to Southeast Asia to attend our postgraduate research retreat. Held over three days, the program builds students’ collaborative research skills, communication skills and capacity to engage in interdisciplinary approaches.

In previous years, themes have included:

2018: Contextualising the thesis in Southeast Asia

2017: Leadership in academia

2016: Interdisciplinary collaboration

2015: Finding your voice

2014: Working across disciplines
