Graduate Research Courses

The Western Sydney University nurtures a distinctive, high-impact research culture, committed to enhancing our region's cultural, economic, environmental and educational development, and responsive to contemporary challenges in Greater Western Sydney and beyond. We are recognised for our capacity to carry out successful collaborative research partnerships and for our work with partners from industry and from the government and community sectors.

Our research commitment is also supported by a ten-year research investment program.

Western Sydney University research degrees are designed to enable students to focus on contemporary social issues and scientific problems. Our research students are supported by a supervisory panel of two to three staff members who may hold honorary or adjunct appointments and we actively encourage the appointment of associate supervisors from industry as well as other universities where this is appropriate. The supervisory panel provides students with well-rounded expertise in topic areas that are increasingly interdisciplinary.

Information for prospective candidates, details on how to apply and information on the programs we offer can be accessed from the Graduate Research School.
