The Office of Graduate Research provides a number of programs and resources to HDR students to help you develop your research and transferrable skills and to prepare you for your future career.
Here you will find the development opportunities available.
REST is a skills training program that consolidates all research and transferrable skills training across the university into one program under the RDF. It is an individualised program, where students choose what training is most relevant to them and at what stage of their candidature.
Can you condense and refine your research project to quickly and succinctly explain it to your peers and the wider community? And can you do it in less than 180 seconds? The 3MT competition can teach you how!
The Write Bunch is an intensive writing session via Microsoft Teams held every Wednesday morning from 10.00am-11.00am. This is particularly aimed at connecting distance HDR students and building an online community and support network.
This topic is available to HDR students as part of their candidature. The topic is intended for new students, in their second semester of candidature, to facilitate achieving the first HDR Milestones. The topic cannot be taken in the first semester of candidature, as students need have some written material to work with.
Undertaking a PhD is a life-changing experience that will enable you to not only develop extensive expertise, but a range of significant skillsets. At Flinders, we have captured these skills in the Doctoral Graduate Attributes as a way of enabling students to identify, develop and apply them.
The Industry Mentoring Network in STEM (IMNIS) is a prestigious mentoring program connecting motivated PhD students in STEM and health with outstanding industry leaders over one year. Officially launched in 2015, IMNIS successfully paired 324 mentoring partnerships in 2018-19 and has hosted a series of valuable networking events.
