About this course

*Enrolment on any campus for any candidate is subject to the availability of supervision and appropriate research environment. The Master’s by research degree requires you to deepen your knowledge of your discipline area and develop advanced skills in the conduct of independent and sustained research. As a Master’s by research candidate, you will undertake a supervised research project that culminates in the submission of a thesis for examination. Upon completion of your candidature you must demonstrate through your thesis that you have acquired an advanced and integrated understanding of a complex body of knowledge in one or more disciplines. Course Intended Learning Outcomes (CILOs) are brief statements defining what students are expected to demonstrate they know and can do by the end of a course. You will be expected to complete your Master’s degree by research within one to two years full-time (or equivalent part-time). Your research project must be conceived from the outset as clearly achievable within the applicable time frame.
