Postgraduate coordinators

Postgraduate coordinators are based in the University's schools and centres, and can help you explore options for projects and supervisors.

You'll be based in one (or more) of the University's schools, centres, or institutes during your doctoral studies. The postgraduate coordinator in each school supports students who are doing postgraduate study, such as for Master's by thesis and doctoral degrees.

Before you submit your application, you can contact postgraduate coordinators for advice and suggestions about researchers to talk to about supervising your project.
