Quality in Postgraduate Research

Quality in Postgraduate Research (QPR) is the world’s biggest & longest-standing conference on doctoral education.

Held every two years in Adelaide, South Australia, QPR brings together educational researchers, policy makers, university leaders, research students & research degree supervisors for the purpose of better understanding the processes, practices, pedagogies and theoretical frameworks of doctoral education.

The next QPR will take place in APRIL 2016. Watch this space for details.


In between conferences QPR supports a vibrant research community, including a number of special interest groups (SIGs). We also maintain an archive of papers & abstracts presented at our conferences.
