The syllabus at readr was designed to train students in skills necessary for postgraduate research, but which are often absent in commencing students. The topics were compiled through consultation with experienced supervisors, the organizing committee, and ANU Research Training.

The Australian National University's Kioloa campus is a jewel of the NSW coast, a short walk from the stunning Kioloa beach. Kangaroos visit every morning, and after each day of learning we can relax by the fire pits.

Registration includes all meals and accommodation on campus, and transport to Kioloa from Canberra.
