What can STaR do for you?
Take control of your research
Postgraduate research can feel daunting at times. STaR helps you to break your research objectives down into easily digestible, small tasks which are easy to manage.
Store and share ongoing work
Upload your drafts to STaR and easily share them with your supervisors. STaR helps to keep everyone on the same page when discussing work.
Demonstrate your progress
Use the objectives, notes and narrative, and built-in progress monitoring modules to communicate your progress with your supervisors and other relevant academics.
STaR is used in the faculties of Arts, Social Sciences and Law, Health Sciences and some schools in Life Sciences, and its expected use differs between faculties. Please check your faculty postgraduate handbook for further information.
