What to expect

Higher degree by research is a difference experience from undergraduate study and it can be difficult to know what to expect. Our higher degree by research students undertake research programs that allow them to make substantial and original contributions to their field of study. In the following videos, some of our students highlight the differences they are making.

PhD student Joanne Gardner talks about her research project that centres around understanding immune responses in elderly clients.

PhD student Rhys Cransberg talks about his research project in investigating the genetic basis of coat colour in alpacas.
