Quality in Postgraduate Research

Quality in Postgraduate Research


I would like to thank you for your patience in what has been a very difficult year for all of us who are involved in higher education.

Following the forced postponement of QPR2020 due to the pandemic, we had hoped to be able to run the conference in April 2021, but that proved not to be possible due to ongoing international travel restrictions and the risk of very short-notice lockdowns within Australia. We then investigated the possibility of holding a virtual conference in April 2021, but circumstances have meant that this has also proved not to be possible.

As a result, could I ask you to note that there will NOT be a Quality in Postgraduate Research conference during 2021.

I am currently investigating the possibility of holding a number of QPR-related virtual events during the remainder of 2021, events which would draw on the conferences Special Interest Groups and on some of the sessions which had originally been offered for QPR2020. I have been in contact with the facilitators of these possible sessions and, if we decide to go ahead, they will be advertised individually on this website, through the QPR mailing list and other avenues.

Once again, thanks for your ongoing support for QPR, our sincere apologies for having to announce the conference’s cancelation once again and we hope that we’ll be able to welcome you to Adelaide again in 2023 when we hope the next face-to-face QPR will be held in the city.

If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch with me ( I’d like to emphasise that responsibility for the conference and its reorganization/cancellation, and also the delays in reaching the point of cancellation, lie purely with myself and no responsibility is borne by either the conference coordinator (Lea McBride) or the conference organizing committee.

If you require a refund of your registration fees for the 2020 conference, please contact Lea McBride (

Best regards
