THE CRAWFORD PHD STUDIES TEAM
People who can help you
The HDR director is the delegated authority (DA) for most PhD matters. The HDR Director chairs the Crawford Research Committee where decisions concerning PhD students are made regarding applications, scholarships, research funding, extensions, student seminars, and events.
The HDR administrator manages PhD applications, annual reports and candidature milestone progress for the PhD student in their respective units. The HDR administrator is your first port of call for general information about PhD facilities, applying for leave, research funds and extensions.
Email email@example.com with a subject line that begins with 'CRAWFORD PhD' and that also includes your uni ID/student number.
CAP Facilities can help you with keys, building maintenance, furniture, and other services.
