The Graduate Research Advanced Skills Program (GRASP) enables HDR students to take control of their research project from the beginning and develop transferable skills in scholarly reading, thinking, analysing and writing.

GRASP provides HDR students with online resources, workshops, productivity writing sessions, individual academic writing consultations and Thesis Boot Camps.
