Higher Degree by Research

The Northern Institute at CDU is a hub for research expertise and leadership and our researchers are recognised as leaders in their fields.

Our research aims to understand regional development and provide strong evidence for policy development and capacity building, responding to the needs of governments and communities.

Our capacity is developed through the involvement of PhD and Master by Research students who can examine issues deeply when partnering with stakeholders.
