What will I learn?

This is your opportunity to expose yourself to an intensive research environment. You will develop expertise in research and learn the concepts, methods and skills required to apply knowledge with creativity and initiative to new situations. The Master of Philosophy (MPhil) is awarded on the basis of independent supervised study that produces a substantial piece of research as judged by independent experts of international standing.

RESEARCH GRADUATE OUTCOMES

The HDR Reconnect project was created in response to the ACOLA Review recommendations. One of the key findings and recommendations was that longitudinal data on Australian doctoral and research masters graduate outcomes and career pathways need to be collected. The review recognised that to get the most out of research training, and to make an informed choice about whether and where to undertake research training, prospective candidates need access to a range of information including potential career outcomes.

Griffith is the first university in Australia to complete a project of this kind.

We set out to: Inform prospective and current doctoral and research masters candidates of potential employment and career pathways; Review our research training to ensure a quality experience is provided for all candidates; Reconnect with our PhD, doctoral and research masters graduates.

Results were gathered in 2017 and 2018 from 1,416 PhD, doctoral and research masters graduates—and outcomes are presented below. We hope you enjoy exploring our interactive project findings.
