Student Support

How we help

Tailored support for Indigenous PhD candidates

The University of Melbourne takes the approach that support for Indigenous research students should be tailored towards each student, in addition to the minimum support outlined above. We strive to work with you to identify top-up stipends, other financial supports needed throughout your candidature (i.e. conference travel etc), as well as ensuring you receive the appropriate academic skills support throughout your research training. Some of these supports are provided individually (i.e. library skills workshops), and others are provided through cohort programs such as abstract writing workshops.

To discuss what you might need to support you through your PhD experience, please contact Warwick Padgham via E: padghamw@unimelb.edu.au
