Celebrating an end to their PhD studies, doctoral candidates have gathered in RMIT University’s Storey Hall.
The doctoral celebrations, held in the lead up to graduation, gave the candidates the opportunity to farewell their supervisors and other staff who had helped them during their studies. It was also a chance to revel in their achievement with their families.
Professor David Adams, Acting Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research and Innovation and Vice-President, said a record 143 Doctoral candidates and another 15 Masters by Research candidates graduated in 2013.
"Congratulations to all the Doctoral Graduates, their supervisors and families for the support during the period of their studies," he said.
Professor Denise Cuthbert, Dean of the School of Graduate Research, said the doctoral candidates came from 39 different countries and spoke a staggering 35 different languages, with English most predominant, followed by Arabic, Malay, Mandarin and Indonesian.
