A Graduate Research Studentship (GRS) directly supports students in research-based graduate programs. The academic supervisor(s) provide advice to the student and guide their progress towards the requirements of their degree on a schedule that best suits the interests of the student’s advancement. The student consults with the supervisor(s) regularly on research matters, and assumes tasks and duties commensurate with the standards of practice within their discipline.
Results of the student’s research efforts are expected to comprise the student's research thesis or paper, but may also in parallel lead to joint publications with his/her supervisor(s). Students must be registered in a graduate program to receive GRS funding. GRS funds are arranged by the student's academic department and paid through Quest.
