UNSW Arts & Social Sciences is committed to supporting PHD candidates with their independent research. We have introduced a comprehensive research training program that is available on-line and face-to-face for all Higher Degree Research (HDR) students. 

The research training program supports the work of our Schools and Centres and is designed to: 

  • support a vibrant research culture
  • ensure HDR students feel supported throughout their candidature
  • create graduates who are prepared for the first stage of their career as a researcher, and who identify as scholars

This program replaces any optional coursework offered in previous years.
