Degree programs supported

The graduate program supports the research students of the academics and research fellows in the E&ERC. These are from the School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences (BEES), the School of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences (BABS), and the School of Mathematics and Statistics. The students may be enrolled in the following postgraduate research degrees:

Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) 3-4 years full time
Master of Science by Research (MSc) 2 years full time
Master of Philosophy* (MPhil)

1.5 years full time, 18 units of credit coursework,

 54 units of credit research

*The MPhil provides an alternative to the Honours year for those students with an excellent academic record, providing greater research experience and a postgraduate degree within 18 months of completing undergraduate studies. MPhil places within the E&ERC are offered on a competitive basis.

Students are required to enroll through the school of their supervisor. The supervisor may then elect students to be part of the E&ERC graduate program.
