At the Institute for Governance and Policy Analysis (IGPA) our PhD students are at the centre of all we do: in research, engagement and education.

We take pride in our ability to nurture our PhD students in a supportive and enabling culture. At IGPA we provide mentoring from world-leading academic, industry and government experts in a collaborative and exciting environment that brings together theory and practice to make a real difference for people, policy and politics.

IGPA PhD students come from a range of backgrounds and experiences, enabling high quality research that has a real impact. Whether you are a senior public servant, you work in international community development, you have a passion for the environment, or you want to create a better voice for all of our global citizens, we are interested in you and your research ideas.

This page directs you to all the information you need about being a PhD student at IGPA, and if you are looking for inspiration take a look at our Current PhD students and Alumni who really show the diversity of research we embrace here at IGPA. In Guidance for Future Students we begin with a brief introduction to why you should study at IGPA, before dealing with issues about funding, the types of PhD we offer, areas of expertise, and the application process.
