HDR Supervision Orientation (2018)

In 2018 a range of changes were introduced by the Office of the Dean of HDR. 


One of those changes is the introduction of a much simpler & quicker way for Faculty to appoint HDR Supervisors.


From March 1st 2018 anyone who wishes to supervise an HDR Candidate will need to have a HDR30 record. HDR30 replaces  HDR01, HDR02 and HDR03.

Retrospective Awarding of 'HDR Supervision Orientation 2018'

The following MQ staff will be automatically awarded HDR30  - HDR Supervision Orientation (2018-2020). 

  • All registrants on the MQSR.

  • All staff who have completed HDR01 and HDR02

'HDR Supervision Orientation 2018' will last 4 years. A supervisor must then update by completing HDR20: Statement of Supervision Practice or equivalent activties.

A diagram of the 2018 workflow process for approval of an HDR Supervisor is provided below.
