If you have any questions or concerns about your candidature there are three points of contact at the University to refer to.
The Graduate School is the central administrative unit responsible for all RHD students at UQ. The Graduate School has academic responsibility for managing admissions, providing research scholarships, supporting students through each milestone process, and facilitating the examination of theses. The Graduate School's UQ Advantage team also organises various events, professional development activities and skills training to ensure that you receive the best guidance and training throughout your candidature and have every opportunity to reach your career potential.
The Postgraduate Coordinator (PGC), sometimes referred to as the Director of Graduate Studies, is an experienced member of the academic staff of the School or Institute competent to act as the Head of School’s delegate in making academic, administrative and (in some instances) resource decisions across the range of disciplines covered by the School.
The PGC advises the Head of School on all RHD matters. In addition, the PGC may chair the School Postgraduate Studies Committee, which will typically have responsibility for reviewing the School’s postgraduate profile, formulating School RHD policy, establishing appropriate procedures for monitoring RHD students’ progress, and advising on facilities and appropriate levels of resources.
The Postgraduate Administrative Officer (PGAO) is a designated member of general staff tasked with providing administrative assistance to the PGC. The PGAO is usually the first point of contact for administrative communications from the Graduate School and may also be the first point of contact for some external enquiries about RHD opportunities in the School.
