Your research degree requires the ability to apply …'analytical and critical thinking skills to generate new knowledge, investigate problems and develop inventive solutions.' (UQ HDR Graduate Attributes, 2017) This starts with the way you design your project, your review of existing literature, the methodologies you use and the analysis you apply. Building these skills during your research degree will equip you to engage these same skills in your future career and apply them in a wide variety of contexts.
