About GRASP Plus

GRASP Plus is a catch-all for everything that does not quite fit anywhere else. More importantly, it is also the team’s attempt to expand the program to include more diverse, fun and broad content and resources that are relevant to HDR students. Please let us know if you have ideas for content, and we’ll add them in!

GRASP Playlist

The GRASP motivational songs playlist is coming along nicely, we have 11 songs so far:

(Sign up for a free Spotify account, or just take the list and listen to it wherever you get your music from).

Get in touch if you have ideas for songs to add, anything that motivates you to keep working on your research and your thesis, or cheers you up when things are difficult.

Thesis Fest

Thesis Fest is a two-day, in-person event hosted by Curtin University Library focused on supporting Higher Degree by Research (HDR) students with research skills and wellbeing. The program is designed to help you re-engage with your research, and to assist you in working towards final submission with confidence and success.

Thesis Fest will run again in June 2022 and invitations will be emailed directly to HDR students during May. Check your student email inbox and watch this space!

Selected recordings from Thesis Fest 2021 can be viewed below.
