HDR Coursework Requirements
From 2011 all candidates commencing a PhD or MPhil in the Graduate Research Field (GRF) of Education will be required to undertake three courses at the post graduate level. PhD candidates in the School of Philosophy will be required to enrol in the following courses:
PHIL8011 Foundations Seminar (12 units)
ARTS8102 Situating the thesis (6 units)
ARTS8103 Research design & ethics (6 units)
Successful completion of these four courses is required for confirmation of candidature.
As part of the initial meeting period with the Chair of their supervisory panel, each student will undergo a brief ‘skills needs analysis’ (TOAST) that will identify the skills which students are likely to need during candidature; which skills they might already have; sources of support and training; and when it is likely that they will need those skills, so that a learning plan can be developed. Recommendations on appropriate courses for individual students will be based on the skills audit and discussions between the supervisor and student.
