Longing to belong in academic culture: Exploring the experiences of HDR students


I was excited to hear about this research project being carried out by UOW researchers Dr. Janine Delahunty and Dr. Kathryn Harden-Thew.  It has real potential to give useful insights to academic and professional staff who support HDR students (including careers).  Take some time to give your views and experience…

Have you ever wanted to share your experiences of HDR study?

Researchers from the University of Wollongong are seeking HDR students at any stage of their studies for their perceptions and experiences of HDR study. The project aims to explore how HDR students move into and through academic culture, navigating the explicit and implicit expectations of others and self. We are interested in finding out about your experiences of becoming and being an HDR student; what you have struggles with; what you wish you’d known before you began; your supervision experiences; where you find other support and your aspirations for the future.

Dr Janine Delahunty & Dr Kathryn Harden-Thew
