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.
