You should direct all queries to your school HDR administrator in the first instance.
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.

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.
