Redefining the ANU PhD - Have your Say

12 July 2017

During the development of the new Strategic Plan the University made a commitment to redefine our PhD program.

ANU has the highest HDR load per total student population of any Australian university, consistently high research rankings and an enviable international reach. To continue to provide some of the best academic programs around the world and to give our students the best opportunities for their futures, we have a responsibility to reflect on what we do well, and to discuss what we might review and change. You are being invited to help shape discussions and have your say on what the new ANU PhD of the future could look like. 

Professor Imelda Whelehan, Dean, Higher Degree Research, will be hosting open forums for all interested staff and students. Please register below for one of the forums.

Questions will include:

  • What should a 21st century PhD look like?
  • How can we ensure that the ANU secures our position as a world leader in graduate research education?
  • What is best practice for PhD delivery worldwide?
  • What changes can we make?

In these forums Poll Everywhere will be used to allow live interactive audience participation. Bring a mobile device (phone, tablet, laptop or iPad) to enable you to join the interactive discussions.
