Join one of the world's top research communities

Find a postgraduate degree that suits your needs.

We offer a diverse range of postgraduate research degrees which produce groundbreaking work across a wide range of disciplines.

A research degree requires an in-depth study in a specialised area, and a research student undertakes a major thesis, supervised by a staff member.

At Sydney we have a particular focus on cross-disciplinary study, encouraging new ways of thinking about problems in areas critical to our common future.

Our Higher Degree by Research Administration Centre provides advice, information and resources to support your candidature from enrolment to graduation.

We also offer our postgraduate research students support, including assistance with applying for grants and scholarships.
