Your Path into Higher Degree Research
A Masters by Research is your opportunity to engage in serious research and contribute new knowledge to your area of research interest. Building on the skills and knowledge developed during your undergraduate study, you'll develop insight and critical research skills, master strong research methodologies, and complete an original research project for your thesis, under the support and guidance of a supervisor.
This master's degree provides you with the experience and expert knowledge you need to confidently approach PhD studies. A research degree from UNSW Canberra will also advance your career possibilities, providing you with the transferable skills required to pursue challenging and diverse roles within research, academia, government, industry, or business.
Graduate research candidates are driven by naturally inquiring minds and have a passion for solving problems and advancing humanity. To be eligible for this degree, you must show clear potential to undertake significant independent research by successful completion of a relevant honours degree; professional work following a relevant undergraduate degree, or completion of a postgraduate coursework degree with a significant research component.
