The Masters of Research qualifies individuals who apply an advanced body of knowledge in a range of contexts for research and scholarships and as a pathway for further research.

A research degree is an advanced study program that gives you an opportunity to deeply explore a topic of your choice and the expertise of their supervisors. To find an expert in your field of interest, see the Web Access Research Portal (WARP) site.

Research degree candidates are driven by naturally inquiring minds, and have a passion to solve problems and advance humanity. A research degree allows you to conduct your own, unique research, and produce new knowledge and expertise that is innovative, relevant, and enlightened.

Research degrees equip graduates with the transferable skills and attributes necessary for challenging and diverse roles in industry, government and business, as well as in research and academic organisations.

At the University of Tasmania, a research degree is a true mark of endeavour, providing you with the training and skills necessary for a career in academia and beyond.

To apply, see the Graduate Research website for application information.
