Selecting a project and supervisor
Since entry is dependent on satisfactory arrangements being made regarding a research project, the availability of facilities within the school, and the agreement of a staff member to supervise your work, you are encouraged to start thinking about and discussing possibilities well before the end of the year. Discuss your interests with a range of staff members, and ask them what types of projects they could offer.
You may also seek co-supervision outside the School, by those that may have stimulated your interest during guest lectures, such as those from many government organisations (EPA, DLWC, Australian Museum, Royal Botanic Gardens, NSW Fisheries etc). By all means approach these people similarly (ie e-mail CV), but you will need an academic supervisor within BEES that must take on the academic responsibility of your project. There is always the risk that externally supervised students may 'fall between the cracks'.
