The Graduate Research School's (GRS) role is ‘empowering tomorrow’s researchers’ by supporting research education throughout JCU and developing and refining the University’s overall Higher Degree by Research (HDR) strategy.
We focus on three key areas:
We support JCU’s Research Education strategy by developing and implementing University-level policies and procedures and fostering industry and international partnerships.
The GRS provides a range of research administrative services, including managing and overseeing all aspects of the life cycle of candidature from admission to examination.
The GRS is committed to providing high quality professional development programs to enrich the experience of our HDR candidates and support their Advisors. To ensure excellence in supervision, we also coordinate the accreditation and registration of HDR Advisors.
JCU recognises, encourages and rewards staff who excel in the supervision of research degree candidates as well as recognising excellence in Higher Degree by Research candidature. You can find more information here.
