Part of the Graduate Research School, our SOAR Centre (Support – Opportunities – Advice – Resources) is a free, peer-to-peer service open to all higher degree by research and honours students.
We provide support and information with a focus on research skills training and career development.

At the core of the service are our SOAR Ambassadors. These higher degree by research students offer one-to-one appointments and group workshops on a variety of topics to support you through your research journey.
You can meet with Ambassadors in our SOAR Centre for one-to-one support, or in group workshops. Ambassadors are also available for a chat about anything to do with your research or student experience.
Note: The Centre will be providing a limited service until the start of semester 1 (24 February, 2020). You can still book an appointment during this period, but the drop-in service will not be available. To see an Ambassador visit the Book an appointment page.
Each semester the SOAR Centre employs up to 10 higher degree by research students as Ambassadors. Being an Ambassador allows you to get paid while you gain valuable personal and professional development alongside your research degree.
The next round of applications open mid-January 2020.
SOAR sessions are group workshops on a variety of topics relating to your research journey. During these sessions Ambassadors share their own experiences and you are encouraged to join in by asking questions and sharing your own knowledge.
