International HDR Ambassadors

International HDR students from the eight universities were selected through a competitive process to form a group of international HDR Ambassadors in May 2018.

These students provide a voice for the international HDR cohort in Queensland and at their respective universities, and have contributed valuable feedback throughout the Project to inform both content and delivery.

As part of their role, these students were sponsored by the Project to attend both the EQUIP Researcher Conference and Connecting Queensland’s Researchers networking function in July 2018.

The International HDR Ambassador Network was officially established in September 2018. Through this Network the students:

  • Discuss issues that impact international HDR students in Queensland;
  • Share best practice examples, tips, and useful information;
  • Provide feedback on components of the HDR E&E Project; and
  • Work together to enhance the experience for international HDR students in Queensland (and all HDR students where relevant).

The HDR Ambassadors will also be participating in the upcoming career buddy program.
