About RexR - Supervisor accreditation status

A fully accredited supervisor is eligible to act as the principal supervisor for a research student.

If you are interested in the research being conducted by a fully accredited supervisor, please email the relevant academic with your interest and a summary of relevant qualifications and/or experience. They will then respond regarding the nature of the project and suggest that you submit an application for admission (given that you hold the appropriate qualifications and/or experience).

Supervisors

Academics can use RexR to create a profile and request accreditation as a co-supervisor or a principal supervisor.

For more information on how to create your profile and the accreditation workflow, please see the
"Getting Started on RexR" page.
