UWA Profiles for UWA HDR students

As a Higher Degree by Research (HDR) Candidate, you can activate and personalise a UWA Profile in our institutional UWA Research Repository. Your UWA profile is one of the top results when people search your name online.

Increasingly for HDR students your future professional role as a researcher and evidence-based practitioner will depend on your engagement and networking with external partners and research end-users during your candidature. Research end-users and their associated workforces (both domestic and international) can include: industry, government, non-government organisations (NGO’s) and not-for-profit (NFP) community organisations.

Your UWA Profile provides you with an important way to share your researcher development and scholarly outputs with industry and external partners.  See UWA Profiles Month November 2023 for more information.
