My research program (HDR)
A Higher Degree Research (HDR) program at Macquarie is a pathway to a career as a researcher in both academia and industry. In addition to managing your candidature, it is important to know how to leverage your degree to enable you to reach your future goals.
HDR Handbook and Guide
The HDR Handbook and Guide contains information for candidates and supervisors interested in, enrolled in or involved in Macquarie University’s research programs.
New candidates must complete two Commencement Programs in their first year of study: the Central Commencement Program, and a Faculty Commencement Program.
During your degree, you may need to access resources or make changes to your enrolment. You will need to obtain approval for any changes to candidature.
