The two most common models of partnership with external organisations for HDR candidates are:
- Embedded/collaborative HDR program in which your entire PhD or Master by Research project is co-designed with an external partner. The supervision team may include a staff member from the partner organisation in addition to RMIT staff
- Short-term placements (3-6 months) in which the research undertaken with the partner may be either:
- a component of your HDR project or
- discrete from, but related to, your HDR project.
