To request a variation to your candidature please complete the relevant variation form from the below list and obtain all relevant approvals prior to returning the forms to UON Graduate Research. Most variations must be received at UON Graduate Research at least one week prior to the census dates of 31 March (for semester 1) and 31 August (for semester 2) in order for them to take effect that semester. Once a variation form has been received and processed by UON Graduate Research, we will notify you and your supervisors via email. In the instances of a leave of absence, or transfer of program, a letter will also be posted. Please ensure your contact details are correct in myHub.
Before applying for any variation it is important to read the Variation to Candidature Information Sheet which provides the rules surrounding each variation and the different requirements for some student cohorts e.g. international students and scholarship holders.
A range of other student policies exist that also relate to research higher degree students. For more information see the policy library.
