Postgraduate Workshop

Bringing together up-and-coming postgraduate students from around Australia to discuss a range of professional development topics, as well as providing an opportunity to network with peers from across the country

Please note this event has been cancelled. 


Capitalising on the leading and emerging Southeast Asia scholars at the University of Sydney for Politics in Action 2020, Higher Degree by Research students engaging with Southeast Asia are invited to join us for a full-day workshop on the theme of teaching.

Doctoral students are often encouraged to teach while undertaking their dissertations to gain relevant experience that will help them in the job market. However, they are often left to navigate the world of teaching on their own. This one-day workshop provides tips to help make the most of your teaching experiences.

The workshop will also include professional development skills and networking opportunities, so you can meet fellow postgraduate students with complementary research interests.

Further information

The workshop is open to any higher degree research scholars both at the University of Sydney and other Universities around Australia. You must also meet the following criteria: 

  • Your research is linked to a country (or countries) in Southeast Asia (defined as Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, Timor Leste, and Vietnam). 

  • You are a SSEAC member. If you are not a member of SSEAC, you can join us here for free.

SSEAC is offering 10 travel grants to postgraduate students residing outside of Sydney to attend this workshop. This grant is intended to contribute towards transportation and accommodation costs to attend the workshop.

In the case that a successful grantee does not live in the same location as their home institution, the grant amount awarded will be based on the location of home institution.

Unfortunately we are not in a position to award grants to students studying at non-Australian institutions or students who are based outside of Australia.

Students who receive a grant are also required to attend SSEAC’s Politics in Action Forum on Friday 8 May 2020.
