Masters and Honours: Research Projects
Coronavirus is limiting our field research activities, however, we have several desktop projects available. These projects use data that have already been collected to address new questions.
Start dates are flexible, so please contact Julian any time if you are interested.

If you are interested in pursuing Masters or Graduate-Diploma level coursework subjects in fire-related disciplines, more information is available here.

We provide food and accommodation. If you are interested in helping out, please fill out the form below.
