Research Higher Degrees

Research Higher Degrees in the Centre of Excellence for Equity in Higher Education

CEEHE is committed to providing a supportive and dynamic environment for research development—by fostering peer support networks, enabling access to leading international scholars in the field (through visiting Professor programs and collaborations with overseas institutions and networks), and providing opportunities to enter new spaces of scholarship under the mentorship of supervisors and other CEEHE staff.

Research Higher Degree students are an integral part of CEEHE's community of praxis and contribute to our research outputs and impact. Our current cohort represent a range of disciplines, methodologies, and modes of study, focussed on issues of social justice and equity in higher education. A list of current RHD projects are available here.

CEEHE welcomes expressions of interest from potential RHD candidates from across disciplines, at PhD or Masters level, in line with the University’s eligibility requirements and application processes.


Mode of study

Research—Full time (PhD or Masters level)

Aligning with CEEHE's principles and commitment to social justice, candidates undertake new research to address issues of  equity in higher education and life-long learning.

Praxis—Part-time (PhD or Masters level) combined with equity practice

Aligning with CEEHE’s commitment to praxis based frameworks, PhD candidates are supported to embed higher-degree level research in their field of practice and complete a PhD (generally by publication) alongside their work.
