Application Procedures

An essential requirement for admission to any graduate degree or diploma is the completion and submission of a current application form with the University in good time. For overseas applications there are two deadlines each academic year. They are The deadlines for Australian students are 30 November and 30 April, respectively.

In the case of Australian students, if the results of your first degree will not be known by the closing date, this should not deter you from submitting an application, provided results are forwarded as soon as they become known.

Applications for candidature may be obtained from the University's Faculty of Science Office for local students and from the International Education Office (IEO) for overseas students. See Section 7 for contact addresses, telephone numbers and fax numbers.

Students seeking to apply for funding in the form of postgraduate research awards, should also note the closing application dates for awards offered in the following year:
