Provision of Resources Policy - Support for PhD Students

  • Provision of Resources Policy Support for PhD Students - The University enrols PhD students on the basis that there will be sufficient resources to support the students through their candidature. This policy outlines the provision of such resources. Further details about specific research resources will be provided by your Department/School
  • From 1 January 2017, new PhD students will receive a $90 printing credit (equivalent to 3,000 pages), and existing PhD students will have this added to any unused credit.

  • Intellectual Property Policy - Intellectual Property (IP) is defined as any discovery, innovation, invention, form, shape, sound image, expression, technique or process which is the product of skill, effort or intellect. For a detailed list of inclusions, see the information below. The IP generated by staff and students is an important outcome of a thriving research culture. UC recognises the advantages of protecting and commercialising IP and wishes to sensibly and fairly share the benefits. This policy outlines the means by which this is achieved.
  • Postgraduate Email Management Policy - The University provides email facilities to students to enable them to communicate effectively both within and outside of the university. This policy outlines the provision of such resources.
