Higher degrees by research (HDR)

As a higher degree by research (HDR) student at the School of Management, you’ll benefit from our academic expertise and commitment to applied and outcome-driven research.

The School of Management offers the following higher degree by research (HDR) programs:

These can be undertaken on a full-time or part-time basis, depending on your individual needs and preferences.

When undertaking a higher degree by research, at least two-thirds of the study program must involve pure research. Although some coursework may be required, a higher degree by research generally does not follow a structure of lectures, tutorials, assessment items and examinations. Instead, the main part of the work will be in the form of a thesis written under the guidance of a supervisor and other thesis committee members.

You’ll have the flexibility to choose what your topic of research focus may be; however, it should fit within one of our broad areas of research focus and expertise.
