The degree can be used as a higher degree qualifying program (for students who do not meet criteria for direct entry to Honours or Masters or PhD programs), to upgrade existing qualifications or to develop expertise in a different but related disciplinary area from that of the first degree.
Students who qualify to enrol in the Honours program would generally be expected to do so rather than enrol in this Graduate Diploma (Research) program.
As part of the program, students are expected to complete disciplinary coursework and a significant independent research project.
As the Faculty has a diverse range of disciplines the exact proportion of research-based work and coursework may differ by School. In addition to conducting research and coursework students will also be expected to undertake Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) training, attend and present seminars, write a literature review, and write a thesis.
