Postgraduate study

The School of Law offers the following postgraduate courses:

Our PhD and Master of Laws (Research) students are attracted to studying at UNE because of the presence of an academic leader in their field of interest. A list of the current staff and their interests can be found on the Staff Research Interests page. We are keen to attract students who want to study here because of the high calibre personnel as well as the flexible study option we offer.

Our Higher Degree Research (HDR) students can choose to study externally or on-campus. External HDR students communicate with their supervisors by email, phone and video call and only come to Armidale for formal presentations during the study program. Our on-campus HDR students benefit from exposure to a close knit academic community and have the opportunity to engage first hand in the research activities conducted by the School, such as being able to attend research seminars presented by UNE staff and invited speakers as well as conferences hosted by the School.

As a first step in the application process, we ask that you complete the expression of interest form and return it to the HDR Coordinator. Once the School of Law has made an initial assessment of your qualifications and the availability of suitable supervisors, you will be invited to submit a formal application to the HDR program at UNE, details of which can be found here.

Eligible students can apply for a Research Training Program stipend or other available scholarships. Details on scholarships can be obtained from the HDR Scholarships page.

We see our HDR students as forming an important part of our wider research community. If you have any questions about undertaking HDR studies at UNE School of Law, please contact the HDR Co-ordinator to discuss your interests
