Master by Research (Ehs) - MRSEHS - 2018


The Masters by Research is an internationally recognised postgraduate research degree that involves undertaking a significant research project.

You will be provided with an opportunity to develop and enhance analytical and research skills through independent investigation in a specific field.

It is a two-year full-time degree in which candidates complete supervised research and usually a 30,000 - 35,000 word thesis. Research can be undertaken in any one of the University’s schools or research institutes and centres.


  • You will be part of a University that accomplishes remarkable research performance through consistent strategies with concentrated research efforts into areas of outstanding achievement.
  • We are widely acknowledged especially in health and medical, and environmental research. In both areas, the University’s research achievements are widely acknowledged.
  • We are committed to pursuing research excellence with impact. We are successful in attracting relatively high rates of research funding not only because of the quality of the research conducted, but also because University researchers are effective at assisting in the application of this research to influence policy and produce benefits for our communities and region.


Gaining a research degree indicates to a prospective employer that you have excellent project and personal management skills, that you can think independently and critically, solve problems and communicate effectively.

Transferable skills developed through a research degree are usually more durable, and therefore, more valuable, than the content knowledge gained. Many Master by Research students choose to continue with their research in order to obtain a PhD.
