Our individual research programmes are structured to give you the opportunity to undertake original and independent research, enabling you to make a contribution to a field of knowledge.
We have a vibrant postgraduate research culture, with a range of degree qualifications across varied areas of research for study of PhD and Masters Research degrees. Many of our projects are interdisciplinary and translational in nature, contributing to the discovery of new knowledge relevant to orofacial medicine and allied subjects of medical science and engineering.
The results of the 2015 National Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) indicated a 92% overall student satisfaction with our courses. 100% indicated that our supervisors have the skills and subject knowledge to support my research and we received a 99% approval for our resources in supporting the progression of a PhD.
