School of Graduate Studies

The School of Graduate Studies has overall responsibility for the development and oversight of policies and procedures for graduate programmes, and for the promotion of graduate study and advocacy for graduate students.

We provide information and administrative services to all prospective and current postgraduate students. Our Postgraduate Advisers can help with doctoral, examination and thesis submission enquiries.

The Dean of Graduate Studies, Associate Professor Caroline Daley, is the Chair of the Board of Graduate Studies. The board is responsible for the creation and administration of the University's policies on postgraduate study.
