Graduate and Research Orientation

Graduate Orientation and Research Orientation and Development(GOROD) takes place at the commencement of Semester one. This event brings graduate research and coursework students together. GOROD provides a perfect opportunity for you to meet and network with your peers, and to find out about more the services and support that will enrich your experience at the MGSE.

The morning session is designed specifically for students who have recently commenced study. The session introduces students to services offered by the MGSE (Student Services and Support, and Research Services) and the wider university (Library Services, Melbourne School of Graduate Research, Academic Skills and Graduate Student Association).

The afternoon session is for new and continuing students who are interested in finding out more about becoming a researcher. Attend a panel discussion on a pertinent issue – for example, finding a balance between work, study and life; managing your supervisor; and making the most of your research community. Participate in workshops that focus on human ethics, refining your thesis, taming your thesis with technology, and introduce you to the facilities and support offered by University libraries.

If there are substantial new enrolment numbers at the commencement of Semester 2, GOROD is held. If there is not a large intake of new students, Graduate Research and Development(GROD) component is run without the morning general orientation. In these cases, Student Centre staff send new students information about MGSE and university student services.
