Higher Degree Research Symposia

Comprising a series of conferences over the academic year, the Intertext, Urban Futures, Social Change, and Practice Research Symposia showcase the vital contributions from Higher Degree by Research candidates across the College of Design and Social Context.

The symposia celebrate the significant contributions of postgraduate researchers towards the advancement of knowledge and provide a platform for transdisciplinary collaboration and information exchange.  

"The College of Design and Social Context has Higher Degree by Research candidates in the fields of art, communication, design, education, humanities, property and social sciences. More than 700 Higher Degree by Research candidates are pursuing a research degree in one of these social sciences, humanities or creative practices. Supervised by hundreds of expert supervisors, candidates engage in an individual project, transforming their lives and advancing their disciplines. All candidates are embedded in active research groups in their schools, disciplines, and the Enabling Capability Platforms. These events are a wonderful way to engage with other researchers, present your milestone to a wider audience, and learn about other research various areas of the college."

- Associate Professor Karien Dekker, Higher Degree by Research Director in the College of Design and Social Context.
