Postgraduate research students undertake research through supervision with some of Australia's leading researchers to produce a thesis or other piece of written or creative work. You can choose from a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) or Masters Degree by Research.
A PhD requires a minimum of three years full-time study. The Masters by Research program requires a minimum of one to two years full-time study and is designed for students with professional experience wishing to engage in research training but who are not in a position to devote three or more years full-time study required for a PhD.
