Research Excellence

The Excellence for Research in Australia (ERA) rankings place the school among the top departments in Australia in terms of achieving 'above world standard' research outcomes.

Our research is intrinsically linked to everything that we do. Leading edge research informs and enriches the School's teaching programs, bringing our students a perspective at the forefront of innovation and agenda setting. Research is also the basis for our engagement with the wider community through joint discovery, consulting and other outreach activities. 

To further drive our research agenda and international standing, the School's key research objectives are to: i) publish scholarly papers in reputable journals; ii) generate external sources of income to fund research; and iii) graduate highly competent research higher degree students.


Together, our researchers can tackle issues with global impact.

Not if, when. The campaign to create change.
