A consortium of eight Queensland Universities came together to host an international HDR1 conference, the first of its kind.

This conference covered practical advice and strategies to enhance the skills of HDR candidates at all stages of the employability process. It also provided a platform for participating HDR candidates to join discussions on the development and delivery of resources to assist all Queensland HDR candidates through their HDR journey, enhance the HDR experience, and bridge the gap between candidature and employment.

1HDR 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.
