Current business research students
RMIT College of Business values its research students and considers them an important part of the academic community. As well as managing your candidature and studying for your qualification we invite you to explore the opportunities on offer for deeper engagement with the world of research.
If a students research project involves any data collection from human subjects ethics approval must be obtained before the data collection process takes place.
We recognise that as your research unfolds you may need to redefine your focus and there are procedures for managing aspects of your candidature that may change over time and for submitting your thesis for examination when that time comes.
The facilities and services offered to research students vary according to whether a student is full time or part time given the different needs of full-time and part-time students.
Students are responsible for ensuring their managing their enrolment details. It is important that you keep your enrolment details up to date and notify the university of any change to your circumstances.
