Launch of Higher Degrees Portal

Launch of Higher Degrees Portal

Date
Saturday, 14 September 2013

The much anticipated Higher Degrees Portal was launched on 14 Sep 2013 during the Graduate Student Day 2013 organised by the Office of Graduate Studies and Professional Learning (GPL). Graduate students will discover that the Higher Degrees Portal is a good one-stop gateway to NIE’s Higher Degree services, news and information. It also provides a converging environment for easy access to information and greater interactivity and community features support dialogue and knowledge sharing especially for graduate students and faculty. Special features have been included in the multi-functional portal to strengthen student scholarship and research capacities. Some features include:

  • New content which features research-related tools relevant to HD students
  • Quick access to the various research centres and research or academic related information such as publications and on-going research
  • A consolidated event platform that not only features GPL events, but also from the Academic Groups and other departments such as Libris and CeL
  • Crowd-sourcing of conferences, seminars and workshops
