Note: We recommend that you submit your application with all the required documents by the on time application date. This will ensure that there is sufficient time to assess your application allowing you to start on your preferred start date. In all cases please also make sure that you allow sufficient time for the lodgement and processing of your visa application by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.

Applications for research courses are accepted at any time throughout the year. However, applicants are asked to nominate their preferred commencement semester (and check scholarship application deadlines if relevant).

Candidates who are required to undertake coursework as part of their degree will usually commence at the beginning of semester one or semester two (see dates below). Candidates admitted directly to research can apply and commence at any time during the year.
