Higher Degree by Research

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're here to help you achieve your goals. We'll 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're 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 you're inspired at CDU and that you feel you belong here.
