Welcome from the Dean of Graduate Studies
Welcome to Charles Darwin University! At CDU, we realize that, as a research candidate, you have probably developed a unique blend of skills, qualities, and ideas--capabilities that you would like to use to improve the world, enhance your life, or both. We are here to help you achieve your goals. We will provide the opportunities you need to demonstrate, extend, and apply your capabilities and insights.
We also understand that nobody is infallible. You might need to manage limitations: perhaps in some academic capabilities, psychological skills, or life circumstances, for example. At CDU, we are committed to helping you clarify, accept, manage, and overcome some of these limitations.
CDU is a small, supportive, and progressive university that fosters social justice and community wellbeing. We hope that you are inspired at CDU and that you feel you belong here.
The Higher Degree Research and Ethics team coordinates and governs CDU Higher Degree Research students' scholarships, enrolments, and progressions while supporting our Higher Degree by Research student cohorts to connect and succeed.
