Congratulations on the start of your research degree!
The following information relates to you as a commencing Higher Degree by Research (HDR) candidate. Individual Colleges will also have information for new candidates, particularly relating to Workplace Health and Safety legislation. Please organise to undertake a College-based induction that includes Workplace Health and Safety matters as soon as possible after enrolment, and ensure that you retain evidence that you have completed this training. Contact your College’s Academic Services Officer (ASO) for further information.
To make your transition to a research degree and to JCU as smooth as possible, we offer opportunity to meet with an Ambassador who is a fellow Higher Degree by Research Student (HDR) currently studying at JCU. We allocate an Ambassador to every new student! You should receive an email from your Ambassador some time in the four weeks prior to your commencement date. If you haven't and would like an Ambassador, please make a Peer-to-Peer Support booking, and we will be in touch as soon as possible.
