Graduate Research Program

In 2016 GCA established a Graduate Research Program to carry out directed research projects in the areas of graduate employability, career development and future work. A Research Committee was formed and applications called for research projects from all Australian universities and other research institutes. Over $750,000 was subsequently allocated and disbursed to thirteen research teams.

This group of projects have been undertaken by several university researchers in collaboration with their colleagues in the career services and has a career development focus.
