Flinders University acknowledges that a higher degree by research (HDR) student must have access to certain basic resources in order to undertake their research and complete their research training. Furthermore, the University undertakes to make such resources available to HDR students as part of its commitment to providing an environment conducive to high-quality and productive research and research training.
The University also recognises that some HDR research projects will require additional resources. In such instances, a guaranteed source of funding for the additional resources must be identified before the student is admitted. The University provides a variety of internal funding sources. However, such sources are, in general, competitive, and it is ultimately the responsibility of the student’s supervisor in conjunction with the student to secure sufficient funding to ensure the successful completion of the project.
The University provides the standard resources outlined below to HDR students. Noting that colleges are responsible for the allocation of space to HDR students.
