¿Qué aprenderé?

This program is designed to provide students with an opportunity to undertake advanced study and supervised research work in the specialisation defined by their undergraduate degree program within the context of a multidisciplinary cohort.

The research skills developed within this program will provide an attractive credential for students seeking employment in the public or private sectors. The program will also provide the necessary preparation for entry into a higher degree research program. The multidisciplinary context of the program, involving team-teaching of students and the sharing of coursework and seminar experiences across disciplines will be invaluable to students given the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to researchers and practitioners seeking to understand complex problems in health.


This program is offered full-time on-campus at the Gold Coast. Students may commence the program in either February or July. Students entering the program in February will undertake an intensive course in Trimester 1 followed by coursework and dissertation in Trimesters 1 and 2. Students entering the program in Trimester 2 will undertake coursework and a dissertation course in their first trimester and complete the dissertation in their second trimester.

This program consists of 30 credit points of coursework and a 50 credit point research thesis component.


The coursework will provide critical evaluation of research and presentation, develop the student's knowledge and understanding of statistical analyses techniques as applied to scientific research and develop an awareness of research proposal design and background.

Students are required to attend compulsory coursework sessions as stipulated in the University teaching timetable and in the course timetables provided by Course Convenors.


Students are required to find a suitable supervisor for their research project prior to submitting their application for admission into the program. Students who are unable to locate a suitable supervisor should discuss their proposed research project with the Program Director.

The final research component of the program will be a dissertation which will involve research on a specific project, a seminar and thesis describing the research in detail.

During your enrolment in the dissertation component of this program you will work under supervision and be required to meet regularly with your supervisor. It is recommended that you discuss on-campus attendance requirements of your research project with your supervisor at the start of the dissertation.

Depending on your project, attendance at off-campus locations may also be required. Where your project requires on-campus laboratory work, students are required to undertake their research at an appropriate laboratory on the Gold Coast campus according to the directions of the student's supervisor, and/or program convenor.


Graduates of the program will be able to plan and conduct research in dental technology and related health disciplines and therefore will be well-placed for positions in the private, not for profit and public sectors. In addition, graduates will be eligible to apply for admission to higher degree research programs, thereby preparing them for high level research careers.
