Graduate Research Studies

Teaching and Learning 2

The CNMR graduate research studies program is one of Australia's best; students are provided with high quality supervision, annual research schools, writing retreats, financial support for direct research costs and opportunities to present their work both nationally and internationally.

Our centre has a vibrant research culture which focuses on health and well-being in the tropics

The JCU Graduate Research School (GRS) provides support and assistance for all higher degree students at our university, offering a comprehensive Research Skills Program throughout the year.  If you are interested in undertaking further research please consult the GRS for information about graduate research opportunities at the CNMR; you can also register your interest and application via the GRS site.

Research Development Pathway

If your masters degree did not have a research component then you will need to complete the Graduate Certificate of Research Methods (Tropical Health and Medicine) as a potential entry pathway.  Alternatively, if you have experience as a researcher, including peer reviewed publications, this can be assessed against the JCU entry requirements.

If you start the GradCert and decide not to enroll in a PhD you can exit at any time and transfer credit points to a Graduate Diploma of Research Methods (Tropical Health and Medicine) or Master of Philosophy (Health), which are all offered by the College of Healthcare Sciences.
