How to apply

Step 1 - Find a research degree

Find the right research degree for you on our full listing of higher degrees by research.

Step 2 - Find a supervisor

Scholarship applicants - All Commonwealth Government and UON scholarship applications must complete an Expression of Interest (EOI) form and have it signed by a potential UON supervisor to be considered for scholarship. You should upload the EOI form with your online application. The potential supervisor will also provide you with a Pre-Identified Candidate (PIC) code which must be included in your application. Please see the Guide for uploading this information with your online application. Support from a potential supervisor is needed before your application can be considered but does not guarantee that you will be offered admission or awarded a scholarship.

The EOI form is a fillable PDF. Please right click the link below and save the document to your computer.

For admission only applicants - it is highly recommended you liaise with a UON supervisor prior to submitting your application. If you are intending to apply for a 2019 Australian Government Endeavour scholarship, your UON admission application should be submitted by no later than 1 June 2018.
