Doctoral academy

The Melbourne Social Equity Institute selects a cohort of research higher degree students from across the university to share their research, knowledge and ideas on social equity issues. The academy aims to support students through peer-learning opportunities and mentoring from experienced academics. 

Membership of the academy will expose doctoral students to different disciplinary perspectives and research methodologies that will enhance their own research. The next intake of Doctoral Academy students will take place in 2018.
