HDR Experience and Employability

The HDR1 Experience and Employability Project enhances the HDR experience for international students in Queensland, and strengthens the leadership and professional capabilities of all Queensland HDR candidates2.


HDR stands for Higher Degree Research. In Australia, our HDR students (known as ‘candidates’) are completing a research degree, usually referring to a PhD. Click here for more information on what this means.

HDR students are referred to as ‘candidates’ by Australian universities and governments to distinguish them from other students. HDR candidates cross the divide between students and staff.
