HDR students: expand your skills and enhance your employability

As a higher degree by research (HDR) student, it’s vital that you develop your professional skills and technical knowledge, extend your leadership capabilities and enhance your career opportunities.

That’s where our Professional Skills Uplift program comes in!

While COVID-19 restrictions mean campus access is currently limited, this initiative will allow you to make the most of this difficult time by completing a range of short courses as part of your Individual Learning Plan.

In partnership with DeakinCo., you’ll be able to develop transferable skills within contemporary topics and emerging fields such as project management, communication, critical thinking, design thinking, financial management, leadership and data marketing.

Feedback from graduates and industry indicates that students with these transferable skills are highly valued once they enter or re-enter the workplace with a research degree.

How it works

Who’s eligible

Any HDR student who has successfully completed their confirmation of candidature and has a consumed load of less than 3.5 years.

How to apply

Visit the Professional Skills Uplift website for full course information and application details.
