About this course

Develop your research skills and contribute to our evidence-based healthcare research outcomes.

The School of Health and Biomedical Sciences conducts research in the area of ageing and chronic disease, including:

  • dementia, depression and cognitive impairment in chronic disease
  • early-life determinants of chronic disease
  • hearing loss and tinnitus
  • postural balance and dizziness in the elderly
  • sleep disorders

You will undertake clinical or experimental research in one of these fields with an individual supervisor overseeing your development and progress.

Research is undertaken in a strongly multi-disciplinary environment that brings clinical and basic researchers together to undertake novel research at the boundaries between disciplines.

Entry requirements

The minimum requirements for admission to a master by research program are:

  • a bachelor degree requiring at least four years of full-time study in a relevant discipline awarded with honours. The degree should include a research component comprised of a thesis, other research projects or research methodology courses that constitute at least 25% of a full-time academic year (or part-time equivalent). The applicant must have achieved at least a credit average in the final year; or
  • evidence of appropriate academic qualifications and/or experience that satisfies the Associate Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Research Training and Development or nominee that the applicant has developed knowledge of the field of study or cognate field and the potential for research sufficient to undertake the proposed program.

At RMIT a grade of credit represents academic achievement of 60% or higher.
