The UWA Fogarty Foundation Postgraduate Research Forum is an annual event supported by the Fogarty Foundation and hosted by The Graduate School of Education at UWA.

The forum provides Higher Degree by Research students with an opportunity to showcase their education-related research and receive valuable feedback from the education research community in Western Australia.

The Fogarty Foundation Postgraduate Research Forum in 2018 presented 30 abstracts. The number of abstracts submitted increases each year, as does the breadth of where the students are studying.

This year students from the University of Western Australia, Murdoch University, Edith Cowan University and Curtin University took part. The forum is led by a student committee and brings together some of the best research in education in Western Australia. Sharing this information with fellow students and across universities enables a broad and valuable dissemination of knowledge.

UWA Prizes

Prizes awarded through the UWA Success through Educational Excellence Program recognise excellence in pre-service and post graduate teaching students. In 2018, the Fogarty Foundation awarded prizes in the following areas:

  • Prize to the student who achieves the highest WAM in the Master of Teaching (Primary)
  • Prize for the best piece of research in the Doctor of Education
  • Master of School Leadership Prize

Our annual Research Forum enables UWA postgraduate education students from UWA and other universities to present their research and explore their ideas in a supportive environment – a great opportunity for the sharing of minds in education related research.
