Careers and opportunities

Information for current HDR students


After they complete their research degree, some graduates are aware of their career aspirations as well as how to pursue these aspirations.  Other graduates of research degrees are uncertain how to proceed.  Should they

  • seek a role in academia
  • pursue a research career in other industries, such as government or health
  • utilise their skills in roles that are not related to research, such as policy or consulting?



To help you answer these questions, you could


  • skim the documents on this page on the CDU website
  • undertake some of activities in the online Career Centre, available from the portal
  • discuss career opportunities with your supervisor
  • contact to enquire about opportunities, such as internships
