A well-prepared application is considered favourably when the University is assessing you for HDR admission. Before lodging your application, make sure you have all your required supporting documentation ready for upload.
Applications are considered on an individual basis and academic, professional qualifications and relevant experience are all taken into account. Please ensure you provide any documentation to support your eligibility for admission at the time you submit your application.
In preparation for lodging your application you need to confirm your eligibility. You will only be considered if you can show you meet all the eligibility criteria. Check the course 'admission requirements' rules carefully.
As part of your application you will need to upload:
Once you have completed the steps above, you can submit your application.
Once you have applied, your application will be assessed. Please note, incomplete applications will not be considered.
We strongly recommend you apply as early as possible and no later than 10 — 12 weeks before your intended start date to allow time for the pre-visa assessment process, as well as external scholarship deadlines if applicable. Processing time also depends upon your country's assessment level.
If you are applying for a scholarship you must check the closing dates as you will need to lodge an application for HDR admission first and separately.
For the standard PhD and Masters by Research, you can start any time during the year but the preferred commencement date is the beginning of semester 1 or 2. For an HDR coursework degree, you must be admitted prior to the start of the first required topic.
Flinders International will advise you of the outcome of your application for admission to a higher degree by research.
If you receive an Offer of Admissions you will need to consult information about receiving an offer from Flinders University, and what to do next. Once your acceptance has been finalised, we will send you instructions about how to enrol.
If you have also applied for a scholarship you will be advised separately of the outcome by Student Finance and Scholarships Services. If you are not awarded a scholarship, you must still act on your offer of admission by either accepting, declining or deferring. If you wish to defer your offer, you may apply to defer for up to one year only.
