You can send your Expression of Interest (EOI) to undertake this course to course contacts.

You will be asked to provide the following supporting documents:

  • A one-paragraph Statement of Support from your Supervisor indicating why they have nominated you or why they think you are a good candidate for the course. For those close to submission, this statement must also indicate that you will be able to complete the assessment requirements of the course.
  • Your thesis title and abstract.
  • A 200-word statement by you as the applicant describing:
    • The career path you have followed (or expect to follow) after completing your Research Higher Degree
    • The leadership role(s) you are playing (or expect to play) in relation to research
    • What  you hope to learn from the course, including how it might enhance your leadership capacity in relation to academic and other communities, including Indigenous.

If you have NOT completed the Professional Certificate in Indigenous Research, you must also provide the following supporting documents:

  • Evidence of a completed doctoral degree. If this is not apparent from your transcript -  for example, if you have submitted your thesis but not yet received a  result - your supervisor's statement of support should clarify this.
  • Evidence  of demonstrable engagement with key issues in Indigenous research. If  your thesis was on an Indigenous topic, a key chapter from your thesis will be sufficient evidence. If your thesis was not on an Indigenous  topic, other sources of evidence will be required, such as a paper you have published on an Indigenous topic or a report on a community-based research project you were involved in. Please discuss this with the Course Coordinator before applying.
