The Faculty of Education and Arts is very happy to welcome research candidates. The Faculty is proud of its research record and its large number of research students, many of whom have gone on to take up academic positions in this or other universities or are now using their research skills in a range of sectors nationally and internationally. We have undertaken many initiatives to grow our profile in research education and training and we offer a highly supportive framework to provide a foundation for your development. You will find exciting work going on in the research centres and groups across all our disciplines.

Need to resolve a problem?
A research candidature presents many challenges, and sometimes you may just need to talk with someone to sort out a problem or address an issue that crops up. The typical route is to start with your supervisors, but if this not possible or you just feel you need to talk to someone else, contact either your School's Research Training Convenor or Head of School. The Assistant Dean Research Training will always be happy to help out whatever the query or concern. Amanda Hall-Griffin is the Research Training Officer and she will make sure that she finds someone to respond to your concerns as soon possible. All these individuals have lots of experience with research higher degree processes and dilemmas. So don't delay, please seek assistance from us.
