accelerated Research Masters with Training (aRMT)
This is a new degree started in 2021. The program only has a January start at present. There is about 12 weeks of course work where you will address the United National identified Global Challenges by working collectively and bringing your specific disciplinary skills to tackling one of the world’s wicked problems (completing units in Research Methods, Research Impact, and Design Thinking). This is followed by a research project (equivalent to the honours degree in scope and time). Costs: Domestic students pay no fees as this degree is offset by the Federal Government Research Training Program (RTP). International students should contact the Graduate Research Office to discuss fees and options. Benefits: a globally recognised degree and the necessary qualification and skillset to apply for Doctoral studies or embark on other career pathways. If you are interested to know more about this degree option, you can contact the Graduate Research Office.
Both Murdoch and Curtin Universities offer training for doctoral and masters research students.
