The University of Tasmania recognises that conference attendance is an important research activity which contributes to the research abilities and profile of a graduate research candidate. Significant skills can be gained and networking opportunities can arise which lead to future research collaborations and employment opportunities.
Similar benefits can be gained from participating in short internships and other research training activities at research facilities or institutions of international standing in the candidate's discipline area.
From 2019, Colleges will have full flexibility to decide when and how travel funds are distributed for HDR candidate research travel. As of 1st January 2019, Colleges will have autonomy and responsibility for oversight, management and administration of the Graduate Research Conference and Research Travel Scheme.
Please liaise with your Head of School/Institute in regard to HDR travel support within your area.
