Who supports Graduate Students on the research journey?

As a graduate student in the CoMH you will be part of a vibrant scholarly community.

As well as the supervisory team, who are responsible for the overall direction of the graduate student’s research, committee groups are active in supporting graduate education.

1. The CoMH Graduate Committee has representation from the Schools and research Centres. We develop and implement activities for an optimal student experience in graduate education and provide strategic oversight of graduate education in the CoMH.

2. An active Postgraduate Student Committee is the voice of the graduate community. Students on the committee liaise with and listen to students in their Centre/School, organize social and academic events and lead initiatives important to the graduate student body.

If you are a current student or thinking about studying with us, I encourage you to avail of all the academic support and recreational resources provided for you. Enjoy the journey!
