Postgraduate Education

The HEARing CRC is dedicated to enhancing the educational experience of higher degree research students to better prepare them for professional careers in hearing research or clinical practice.

Students undertaking a research project in association with the HEARing CRC are likely to benefit from working in collaboration with industry and clinical partners - developing commercial and project management skills alongside advanced research and technical skills.

Our postgraduate program aims to deliver highly skilled, industry-ready graduates by:

  •  offering a development program focused on core research skills such as presenting and writing, incorporating non-traditional subject areas such as IP management, project management and research ethics, resulting in improved awareness of the needs of industry in applied research and enhanced employment opportunities for our graduates; and
  • enhancing the postgraduate learning experience through active involvement of supervisors and lecturers from non-academic HEARing CRC Members.
