Research in the Faculty of Science, Medicine and Health

 The Faculty of Science, Medicine and Health provides a dynamic, research-intensive environment for Higher Degree by Research (HDR) students.  We offer programs in chemistry, molecular bioscience, earth and atmospheric sciences, life sciences, medicine and medical science, nursing, indigenous health, nutrition and dietetics, and exercise science.

HDR Student Resources

Some of the key roles of the HPS are to coordinate Annual Progress Reports (APR) and monitor progress of candidates to ensure timely completion and resolve any issues raised in the APR process, and to coordinate, participate in, and finalise Research Proposal Reviews (RPRs) of students.

A HDR candidate who has a question or concern about a decision, act or omission that affects their academic progress within the scope of the HDR Student Academic Complaints Policy should first approach their Supervisor(s) directly to discuss the matter. The HDR candidate may alternatively seek advice informally from other appropriate persons in the Faculty (e.g. Head of School, Head of Postgraduate Studies, Associate Dean (Research).  Full policy details.
