The Monash Doctoral Program combines the rigour of a world class research community with a suite of professional development opportunities that prepare you for life beyond your degree.
A significant research contribution to your discipline supported by high quality supervision is at the heart of the Monash Doctoral Program. You will be supervised by at least two active researchers who participate in an ongoing supervisor training program. This ensures you benefit from the knowledge and experience of our diverse and innovative research community.
Your research will be complemented by professional development modules or coursework units that support and enhance your contribution as a research student and prepare you to make an impact in industry, academia, government and the broader community.
Depending on faculty, discipline-specific topics are also available. These are designed by academics with a thorough understanding of their discipline and related industry, and cover technical, research and academic skills.
Opportunities also exist for collaborative research that allows students to work with a range of researchers from various disciplines on projects connected directly to industry and government.
The Monash Doctoral Program will enhance your research experience and ensure you graduate with the research and professional skills required to become a leader in your chosen field.
