Higher Degree by Research (HDR)

The Institute for Social Science Research (ISSR) enrolls Higher Degree by Research (HDR) students from a wide range of disciplines to undertake a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) or a Master of Philosophy (MPhil).  

The Institute for Social Science Research is a national leader in advanced interdisciplinary social science and evidence based policy research. ISSR researchers address some of the most important issues and challenges facing Australia today in areas such as education, employment, housing, social wellbeing, homelessness, sustainability, and Indigenous studies. Using qualitative and quantitative methods, our scholars work closely with policy makers and frontline development workers to ensure our research directly impacts upon policy and practice and contributes to systemic institutional change.
