During your research degree, you'll be connected with world-class research facilities. This includes everything from technology platforms and specialised lab equipment to bespoke research precincts and study spaces.
Along the way, you’ll be supported by highly skilled experts to complete your research.
Discover the research facilities available to graduate researchers.
Equipment and platforms
Our equipment and research platforms help to get results you can trust. Our platform technologies range from advanced microscopy and cultural informatics to metabolomics and health economics. And our platform technologists offer expertise on everything from defining the best method to analysing the data.
Industry and research precincts
When you’re early on in your research career, forging new connections is important. Being near to other researchers, in and outside of your field, can encourage innovation and lead to future research and work opportunities. And when you conduct your research with us, you’ll be in the heart of Australia’s leading scientific and cultural precincts.
Depending on your research topic, you may base your studies at one of our campuses, nearby hospitals or affiliated institutes.
Each place of research offers programs that are tailored to your discipline. This means you can shape your experience to get the results you need. You might choose to do your research:
- At one of our seven campuses
- In the Melbourne Biomedical Precinct – at hospitals or affiliates, like the Murdoch Children’s
- At the Southbank campus in the Melbourne Arts Precinct
- Jointly in Melbourne and with an international partner
- Jointly in Melbourne and embedded with research or industry collaborators.
Our campuses offer dedicated spaces for learning and research, as well as unique places to socialise, share ideas, relax and stay healthy. Learn more about campus life.
As a full-time graduate researcher, you can access a workspace and desk.
Part-time graduate researchers will have a workspace and, at least, shared use of a desk. There are also many comfortable and inspiring places to study across our campuses.
