Meet with your advisors

When you commence your candidature we recommend you talk to your advisory team about:

Take ownership of your project and, in the first instance, proactively raise any concerns you have with your advisor or the postgraduate coordinator in your school or institute.

Organise the essentials

  • Familiarise yourself with your enrolling unit’s milestone processes. You should be planning ahead for your confirmation milestone very early on.
  • Ensure you are aware of financial arrangements, for example, conditions of scholarships or internal/external funding, which may affect your project. Speak with the HDR Liaison Officer in your enrolling unit to learn how to order resources for your project etc.
  • Seek advice from the UQ Union Legal Service on intellectual property (if required).
  • Liaise with the HDR Liaison Officer in your enrolling unit regarding key and/or swipe access to relevant UQ buildings.
