Information for PhD students by Peter Christen

This page contains information for current and future students (those looking for a possible PhD place at the Research School of Computer Science at the Australian National University), as well as some useful resources for supervisors.

Prospective students, please note: At the moment I already supervise a large number of PhD students, so for the foreseeable future I do not have any further capacity for additional supervision.

For general information about PhD applications, including requirments, please see the future research student page by the ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS).

Information and resources for future students

The following links are for students looking to start a PhD. Some of these are specific to the ANU while others are more general advice.

There are many more relevant sites on the Internet that can be a useful set of resources when trying to make a decision about pursuing a PhD or not. A search for "PhD advice" on your favourite Internet search engine will give you a long list of sites with both good, but maybe also some bad, advice.

Another helpful tip before contacting a potential supervisor is to first contact some of her/his students and ask them about their supervisor's approach to supervision.

Finally, some fun stuff:
