We are introducing a new coursework curriculum into all our Higher Degree by Research (HDR) programs – both PhD and Master by Research.
The new coursework curriculum will come into effect for all College of Business and Law HDR programs from Semester 2 2022, and all College of Design and Social Context and College of STEM HDR programs from Semester 1 2023.
The new curriculum has been designed with your candidate journey in mind and aims to enhance the quality of your experience as you progress through the key milestones that are part of RMIT’s HDR journey. Through innovative, modularised curriculum design, the new coursework courses will provide opportunities for cross-disciplinary learning activities that will provide you with a cohort experience, as well as enabling peer-to-peer learning.
You will also have access to an increased suite of optional courses from across the University, and an enhanced co-curricular program, that will allow you to:
- Develop your cross-disciplinary knowledge and build your networks while learning with candidates and researchers from a wide range of research areas
- Complete your degree with a strong, highly sought-after skill set, readying you for careers in both academia and industry
- Select a diverse combination of coursework and co-curricular offerings that will complement and assist you on a successful HDR journey.
