Personal support and guidance
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.
Apply for funding support to assist with travel related to your research.
