Achieve your ambitions

Opportunities are available to undertake supervised research at doctoral and masters level. Research degree programmes are available on either a full or part-time basis with the exception of the Doctor of Medicine and the Master of Surgery, which can only be studied on a part-time basis. If you will be studying on a Tier 4 Visa then you will be required to study full-time.

Many research students define their own research project with guidance and support from an allocated supervisory team.
