Our groundbreaking research is strongly impact-oriented, seeking to inform policy and practice through high quality research, as evidenced through our research grants and publications. Our research is clustered into six themes.
IDD has a vibrant community of postgraduate researchers, studying either full or part-time, on campus or via distance learning. It is also possible to be registered at two sites, in a split-site mode of study. The 4-year PhD with Integrated Study provides an extra year of study for research students, with that extra year used to receive research training and complete other modules that are relevant to a student’s research interests. Our research students are supported with regular supervision, research training, dedicated seminars and funding to support fieldwork and presentation at conferences.
