Lab access, computers and other resources

Research students work in laboratories arranged around research groups in the School. See the School Manager to arrange an access card for your office.

As well as office space the School provides each graduate research student with a computer and other resources for their research. All UWA graduate research students are provided with a minimum allocation of resources. You should speak to your supervisor if you have any special requirements.

Copies of the excellent guide How to get a PhD and proceedings of the School’s latest Research Conference are available from the School office.

Policies and forms

The Graduate Research School manages policies and forms for postgraduate research students.

Travel and research expenses

Read the School travel and research expenses policy before you submit a conference paper, or enter any other research related travel arrangements.

Resolving problems

The University seeks to provide you with a learning environment which is as trouble-free as possible and therefore conducive to an enjoyable and productive period of graduate study. To support this aim, it encourages informal and open discussion of problems as they arise with your supervisor or with the School’s Postgraduate Coordinator, Du Huynh. All candidates and supervisors should also be aware of the University’s formal policies for Resolution of Grievances for Graduate Candidates Engaged in Research.
