Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)
'Studying a research program at USQ has been great. The faculty acknowledges the importance of research students to the university.'
Research student Mark Emmerson is confident he made the right choice studying his PhD in History at USQ.
'Studying a research program at USQ has been great. The faculty acknowledges the importance of research students to the university, and academic staff are very supportive of our goals and career objectives. My supervisors and other staff are always there for help and a friendly chat, and I really appreciate their mentoring of early career researchers such as myself.'
Mark enjoyed not only the academia but also the social and sporting aspects of university life. Living at USQ Residential Colleges while studying his undergraduate degree and honours helped foster a work-life balance that Mark appreciated.
'The Residential Colleges enable students to ease into uni life, with many services designed to make it easier when leaving home for the first time and also to let you focus on your studies in a safe and socially orientated environment. The social benefits alone and the friendships made while there were well worth it. I thoroughly recommend any student to stay on campus – I went for a semester just to check it out, and stayed for my whole degree.'
