Our students are a key part of the TBI Network. We believe in supporting students to achieve academically, as well as supporting their wider career development goals.
We can support research activities alongside clinical papers (Honours, MHSc) or as a research only degree (MPhil or PhD).
We welcome enquiries from anyone with an interest in postgraduate study in the area of brain injury and concussion – and especially those with an interest in:
We can also support students studying TBI at other institutions by helping to profile their work, connecting them in with other researchers in the field and assisting with recruitment.
Here’s what some of our students have to say:
"Working with the TBI-N has been such an amazing experience. I have had the opportunity to work alongside various companies, experts, and community organisations. This environment is a catalyst for the development of great ideas, projects and knowledge. The sense of community and support for new TBI research and community based action is evident and extremely motivating." Renata, 2020
"Working with Alice has been a pleasure and a privilege. The experience that Alice has, alongside her enthusiasm and dedication to help students, created a unique opportunity for me to complete my thesis alongside a network of professionals within the TBI field." Jules, 2019
"The network linked me into a research assistant position where I continue to be supported and mentored, and I'm now enrolled in the AUT Rehabilitation Psychology Masters programme. I'm encouraged to challenge myself academically in a supportive environment and invigorated to be part of projects that aim to improve the lives of individuals who sustain a concussion/mild TBI." Maureen, 2019
These current projects by some of our students give an idea of the scope of research going on at the TBI Network:
It has been great to see so many of our past students go on to some exciting careers and wonderful that we still get to work with many of our students, even after their studies are completed.
