We encourage students to research the degrees and majors they plan to study at Universities. Different Universites have different courses that are offered onsite and all the information is available on their website including a full list of subject areas offered, degrees, admission requirements, and the associated fees and costs.
Masters by Research applicants are advised to contact an academic in the relevant School/Department to ensure that your area of proposed research can be supervised at the University, before submitting an application to the department.
PhD applicants: PhD enquiries and applications are managed through the Faculty of Graduate Research.
There are two stages to becoming a student at University
