Higher Degrees by Research
Research may be defined as creative work that is undertaken on a systematic basis in order to increase our theoretical and/or practical knowledge and to apply knowledge in new ways. 
 
Four Higher Degrees by Research (HDR) are available to suitably qualified candidates at CTC. Research degrees are undertaken under supervision of two approriately accredited supervisors, one of whom must be a research active faculty member of UDiv.
