Support for research students

Candidates undertaking postgraduate research have unique needs, and navigating the complexities that arise along the way can be challenging. 

At Bond University, we recognise it is critical to provide specialist advice, training, and support to higher degree by research (HDR) candidates throughout their journeys. We achieve this through a broad range of offerings, including academic support, assistance with budgeting and securing funding, wellbeing support, and more.


Research training

Research training

It is critical that all HDR students and supervisors share a wealth of knowledge to ensure the dissemination of effective research training and support. As a result, Bond offers significant opportunities for training, support, and information exchange every semester, beginning in Orientation Week.

Budget and funding support

Bond University provides support with creating project budgets for HDR projects, as well as funding support to cover project costs.

Conference and travel funding

Bond University provides financial support to all HDR candidates on a case-by-case basis to fund conference registration, accommodation, and associated travel costs where the candidate has been accepted for an oral presentation, paper presentation, poster, or other form of research dissemination.

Academic support

Even at a postgraduate level, the benefits of personalised academic support and the right resources are endless. 

Wellbeing support

The demands of postgraduate research are not to be underestimated, which is why we pride ourselves on providing excellent support that prioritises the mental and physical wellbeing of our HDR candidates throughout the entire study journey.
