For admission to a research higher degree program, you normally need an Honours Class 1 or 2A degree or equivalent, although other qualifications may be considered.
Admission to a PhD is possible if you have an undergraduate degree with Honours class 1 or 2A from Flinders University or if you have qualifications deemed by the Board of the appropriate college to be at least equivalent, provided that the Board approves your program of studies.
Alternate pathways for admission into a PhD include a Flinders Doctor of Medicine with a minimum credit average or a Masters by Coursework degree including a research component of at least 18 units (or equivalent unit value from another institution) with an average grade of Distinction or better for the research component, or a significant number of research publications, or a Masters by Research.
Note that Doctor of Philosophy (Clinical Psychology), Doctor of Education, and Doctor of Public Health have additional entry requirements outlined on the application form.
Applicants for the following courses, please note:
If you don't meet the above eligibility requirements you may be able to study a Graduate Diploma in Research Methods. This will provide you with an in-depth knowledge of, and skills in, research methods for your chosen discipline area as a pathway to higher degree research study.
If you are unsure whether you meet the entry requirements, please contact the Research Higher Degree Administrator in the college appropriate to your research area.
