HDR Support and Development

COVID-19 Update: Macquarie University has taken the decision to substantially move to an online learning environment to support the provision of continued learning and teaching. In order to facilitate these changes, we will pause all face-to-face and online teaching from midnight Tuesday the 17th of March with teaching resuming on Monday 30 March.The break previously scheduled for 13 April to 26 April will now be a part of the normal academic teaching period, noting that April 13 remains a Public Holiday (Easter Monday).

The HDR Support & Development teams are working to provide online access to our resources to ensure our HDR candidates are supported during this period and beyond. Please send any enquiries through to the relevant team or hdrmatters@mq.edu.au

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.

You can view and access our workshops via HDR Workshops and Courses
