Current news and notices for students
CECS Researcher through to ANU 3MT finals.
The CECS 3MT competition was held at 2pm on August 28th in the RSISE Seminar Rm (Building 115), with students from both Research Schools competing. All the topics presented were engaging and well received by the enthusiastic audience, and the expert judging panel (Mark Reid, Adi Chopra and Marina Lobastov) had to think long and hard. The margin in the end was very small but there could be only one winner on the occasion – Kiara Bruggeman from the Research School of Engineering, who was also the winner of the People's Choice Award. Narjess Afzaly (Computer Science) was the runner-up in the College Final.
As College winner, Kiara receives a $1000 research support grant, and has the opportunity to go on to represent the college in the ANU finals on 17 September, where we wish her all the best.
Kiara also came second in the ANU Open Day practice event (held only two days after the college event), collecting a further $500 in winnings!

You must complete the appropriate form or template for many administrative and academic processes within the University. In general it is your responsibility to ensure that any forms or templates submitted have been signed by yourself and by your panel chair (where required) before being submitted to your school HDR administrator.
It is a University requirement for all HDR students to submit regular reporting milestones. They are integral to ensuring that you maintain satisfactory progress, and alert us to any issues that may arise and which may hinder progress towards completing your thesis. You can find relevant PhD monitoring templates here.

The student advisor program aims to help you with any problems which affect your study. If you do have concerns please feel free to contact one of the academics in the program. All discussions are confidential and informal.
The student mentor scheme aims to help new research students during the first six months of their program. Mentoring is available to all students but it is expected that all International students arriving direct from overseas will be assigned a mentor.
There are many different student-driven associations on campus for socialising, networking and support.
This grant enables currently enrolled PhD students to spend a period of up to three months undertaking research as an intern at an overseas institution. Grants are for a maximum value of $15,000.
