    Master of Philosophy (Indigenous)

    I feel a lot more prepared to successfully undertake a research masters. I understand the processes, skills and techniques a lot better. It’s also good getting to know the supervisors and building that relationship and knowing that I’ve got a good support structure to be able to call back on when I need a hand.

    The intensive workshop has been fantastic. I’ve never had this level of support in any of my previous education. This is an entirely different way of teaching.

    A Master of Philosophy is quite fun – it’s very different from coursework. It’s self-guided. You get to develop your own projects as you go. You’re coming up with research problems and research questions. You’re learning how to develop data collection tools. You’re learning skills that can be used in any setting.
