This paper explores the construct of resilience as evidenced in a case study focused on Higher Degree Research (HDR) students as they undertake their studies. A three dimensional framework for resilience is used as a lens to better understand the conditions that develop resilience for this group of students and how personal and institutional resources can support them. This process is termed resilience education. The paper asserts that resilient individuals are resource builders who are better able to adapt and deal with changing circumstances.
