Research at UniSC

At UniSC there are multiple pathways into a research program. To explore options visit Research students.

Honours Programs

An Honours degree offers you the opportunity to continue your undergraduate degree studies in a topic of your interest and prepares students for enrolling in a PhD (Doctor of Philosophy). For further information go to Honours applications.

Masters or Doctoral Research Programs

Whether enrolling in an honours, masters or doctoral program you will need a supervisor. We suggest you look at our members in the Centre for an appropriate person whom may align with your research interests. It is recommended that you send a copy of your resume, a summary of your work experience, and what you are interested in studying during your research program with UniSC. If you are unsure which academic to approach, email the Centre Director with a resume and a short statement for his advice on who may be able to support you in your research.
