Our study options
We place a strong priority on teaching and training undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as our early career researchers (ECRs).
experience with world-leading research on urban transitions
connection and exposure to international research collaborations
opportunities to work with industry partners
opportunities to communicate research to wide audiences
a gateway to contribute to contemporary public policy and practice-related debates.
Our teaching includes a subject within the Bachelor of Arts and two subjects within the Master of Architecture and Urban Design.
We offer excellent supervision and host weekly seminars (CUTransitions Talks) and social activities. As a research centre, we consider higher degree by research (HDR) candidates as young researchers in training and our future peers and have established tailored academic professionalisation seminars for them (Career StartUp Fridays), a representation committee (CUT PhD Voice) and a blog that skills and prepares PhD candidates to become future transition researchers.
In our centre, PhD Candidates are encouraged to participate in international networks and attend conferences as well as participate in all research activities as part of their academic journey. We welcome enquiries from potential candidates in the behavioural and social sciences and are happy to discuss options for scholarships and funding.
