Higher Degrees by Research

School of Graduate Research

University of Divinity (UDiv) has a long tradition of research excellence, and produces world-class research in all theological disciplines. The University actively fosters a vibrant research culture through publications, conferences, seminars, visiting scholars, four higher degrees by research (HDR), and a research methodology unit for current and prospective HDR students.
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.
Research degrees are undertaken under supervision of two appropriately accredited supervisors, one of whom must be a research active faculty member of the University of Divinity.
The following degrees are open to graduates of at least four years of full-time tertiary study, including at least one year of study in theology or an associated discipline:
Research students have full borrowing rights at all the libraries of the University of Divinity, and are supported by a regular program of research activities, where they have the opportunity to meet with other research students, and to discuss the progress of their own work.
