Higher Degree Research Candidate Induction to ANU

Provider business unit: Researcher Development »

Welcome to ANU.

There are many metaphors for doing a PhD or MPhil - people often describe it as like running a marathon or climbing a mountain. The metaphor that ANU candidates share with us the most is a roller-coaster. It represents the ups and the downs you might experience during your degree.

This free, one day intensive Higher Degree Research Candidate (HDR) Induction to ANU is an essential welcome to your HDR program provided by Professor Ann Evans, Dean, Higher Degree Research.

  • Discover the resources available to support Higher Degree Research (HDR) candidates
  • Explore some tools and techniques for efficient and effective research practice
  • Share how to make the most of your time at ANU

Tickets for HDR Candidate Inductions can be purchased for free two months in advance. Dates for 2020 sessions are currently postponed due to COVID-19. We apologise for the disappointment.

This free face to face session is available to all new MPhil and PhD candidates. If you are unable to attend a face to face induction this year, I encourage you to complete the online #ANUHDR Candidate Induction. Your school or college will also invite you to an Orientation program, reach out to your HDR administrator for more information.
