Go8 Backgrounder 11 - Perceptions of Australia as a postgraduate research destination
In 2009 the Go8 commissioned market research to examine the attitudes, perceptions and experiences of Australia as a destination for study at the Higher Research Degree level. This backgrounder highlights some of the positive aspects of the Australian experience.
The top five aggregated strengths of Australia as a research destination were: Australia’s multicultural society, the friendly and welcoming nature of Australian society, the quality of Australia’s universities, the safe environment and the research culture.
In addition there are very high levels of satisfaction with the quality of academic supervision amongst current and former research students and students are attracted to the shorter duration of the Australian PhD.
