Welcome to our new Graduate Researchers

Friday, 15 March 2019


ECU is delighted to welcome our new Graduate researchers!

Graduate research, the search for new knowledge and the impact it has on community, industry and Government sits at the very centre of ECU’s priorities. So, we greatly value our ECU research candidates and provide the best possible supervision and support to make your experience as rewarding and enjoyable as possible.

As a new research candidate, always remember that engaging with a vibrant and diverse higher degree by research environment is a key component to success. So, be sure to keep an eye on School, Graduate Research School, Centre for Learning and Teaching, Library, and other ECU centres for training, career development, workshops, visiting scholars, and engagement opportunities.

New oral examination

All PhD candidates enrolling at ECU from 1 Jan 2018 are required to take an oral examination as part of their final thesis examination. PhD candidates who enrolled before 1 Jan 2018 may opt-in to do an oral examination. The oral examination provides PhD candidates with an opportunity to clarify issues that might arise with the examiners, confirm any required changes, engage with experts in their field of research and provide advice on future research employment.

Professor Joe Luca, Dean, Graduate Research School

GRS Research Skills Training Workshops are currently held face-to-face, however where possible we have recorded sessions or created online resources for students who are unable to attend on-campus workshops. Please contact for further details about accessing online resources.
