HDR Support and Development

HDR Support and Development

Macquarie’s Higher Degree by Research (HDR) Support and Development team offers research training that is flexible, diverse and candidate-driven. Our initiatives assist you to develop essential skills in research communication, employability, mentoring and leadership.

What we do

Our programs are designed to equip you with the knowledge and confidence to conduct your research, communicate your insights to broad audiences, and develop sustainable, transferable skills that are attractive to employers across all sectors of society. We offer over 200 workshops, courses and seminars per year, both face to face and online, as well as creating opportunities to engage with other HDR candidates and employer representatives, to ensure your best experience and opportunities.

What are the benefits?

Higher Degree Research is a transformative experience – academically, professionally and personally. Our role in the Support and Development team is to help you become independent, resilient and empathic researchers who can reflect on what you are doing to understand how your work contributes to the broader community. Regardless of your field of research, you benefit from learning well-rounded strategies and practices for success in the workplace.

How do we support you?

Our team consists of four programs that complement and build on each other. These programs actively collaborate with Macquarie’s research community, faculties as well as industry partners to create meaningful and exciting opportunities for your research journey.
