Graduate research advice for returning to campus

Information for graduate researchers about returning to campus for research activities

In line with Victorian Government advice, we look forward to welcoming more graduate researchers back to campus in 2021.

On-campus research

Approval for campus attendance will be managed by Academic Divisions, and local controls and rostering will ensure density constraints and COVID-safe practices are adhered to.

Graduate researchers will need permission to be on campus. You should discuss your return to campus with your supervisor or Return to Campus Co-ordinator.

Off-campus research

There are considerable complexities regarding approvals for off-campus research. This includes fieldwork, research in communities or organisations, in-person interviews, and research involving animals, plants or people that are time and place dependent.

Face-to-face research can take place, subject to divisional approval and in line with current regulations.

Further advice regarding specific situations should be sought from your supervisor or graduate research manager.
