Important notice​​​​

The Department of Education has resumed the usual appraisal and approval processes for research applications from Term 4, 2020. Please keep up to date with Queensland Health directives and adopt remote methods of data collection (where possible) with minimal research imposition on our staff, students and parents/carers. Application processing may take longer than the usual 8–12 weeks at this time.

The department relies on high-quality research to inform its education policy and services. Research services plays a key role in making sure that research carried out with the department, state schools and our other state education sites has educational benefits, is appropriate and worthwhile, and is done in a safe and ethical way.

On these pages, you'll find information about research with the department, state schools and other state education sites. Learn about funding opportunities, how to apply to conduct research, current research projects, and how to maximise the impact of your research.
