What is the main benefit of completing a higher degree by research?

Updated 08/12/2020 02.46 PM
Besides allowing you to push the frontiers of your field through new and exciting research, higher degree by research (HDR) programs like the PhD are globally recognised qualifications that can open many doors for career opportunities- in academia and other fields. The research training and skills you obtain through a PhD are highly valued in Australia and internationally by employers in the private sector, government, not-for-profit and academic fields.
Our research graduate outcomes site shares findings from a recent HDR graduate employment study, with interactive reports showing employment types, earnings and more.
