How to access
Moodle can be accessed via SOLS after you have logged in, by clicking on the ‘eLearning’ tab.
If you have any issues accessing these Moodle sites, please contact email@example.com.
We aim to create an inclusive and supportive environment at UOW where you can spend time with other HDR candidates studying and completing any work you may need to get done. To keep up to date with activities organised by the GRS, please regularly check your student email for key information. HDR candidates are automatically subscribed to the GRS email list where you will find out more about our events and ways to connect.
The HDR International Peer Mentor Program connects existing HDR candidates with early stage HDR candidates who are either moving to Australia or have commenced their candidature from abroad. The International Peer Mentor Program runs for a five-month period in both Autumn session and Spring session.
A call for mentors and mentees for the Autumn 2023 program will take place in February. Please continue to check your email for more information.
Write and Connect
Write and Connect workshops for HDR candidates are offered during recess breaks and in between sessions. These workshops focus on writing and encourage HDR candidates to learn from UOW academics about different writing processes and skills, connect with one another, and have dedicated time to write your PhD in a supportive space.
Faculty and School HDR student committees or groups offer social activities for HDR candidates.
These activities are usually posted on each Faculty or School Facebook or Twitter page. If you would like further information, please contact your Head of Postgraduate Studies or School HDR Representatives.
HDR Facebook Community
The UOW HDR Community Facebook group aims to strengthen the HDR community at UOW and encourage candidates to connect, collaborate, encourage and support each other. We want to generate a culture of knowledge sharing among HDR candidates and GRS will from time to time use the group to share events and initiatives for HDR candidates.
Our workshops have been developed in collaboration with HDR candidates, academic and professional staff, and support services across UOW.
