Abstract

Government policy changes to the funding of research students has had a fundamental influence on how universities look at and manage their research students. This paper discusses the findings from a multi year case study on the transition into research and the effectiveness of new management policies intended to integrate research students as a core component of the institutional research effort. The findings can be grouped in three main areas: the centrality of communication; the importance of information, and, the need for transparency. The recognition of research students as early career researchers and not simply students formed part of the professionalisation of research education within the university and its strategic alignment with institutional goals.
