A research degree is a postgraduate degree completed by research alone and leads to either a Master or Doctoral degree award. The work involved is largely undertaken independently and the study is supervised by at least two supervisors.

What is Higher Degree Research (HDR)?

Research is about the discovery and evaluation of important new and creative ideas, processes and products. These ideas are generated from the researcher’s intrinsic interest in a topic and develop in response to the research work of other researchers - often by way of collaboration (sometimes with supervisors) - and they rely on well chosen and robust methodologies. Research usually involves a number of different intellectual stages accompanied by a series of support mechanisms.
