Why study HDR? 

We offer PhD and Masters-level research degrees in every discipline, including collaborative and highly industry-driven doctorates. We can also help broaden your experience and connections through a jointly awarded PhD with our fellow world-leading, research-intensive domestic and international partners.   

Finding a supervisor 

Once you have decided on a research project, an Academic will need to assess your eligibility.   

Send the following to your potential supervisor or to one of our Postgraduate Coordinators for an initial assessment:   

  • academic transcripts   
  • current CV   
  • explanation of area of interest

Once you have emailed the above to your potential supervisor, you can apply for admission and scholarships through the Adelaide Graduate Research School.    

How to apply 


The Adelaide Graduate Research School administers applications for both admission and scholarships (domestic and international). 

Admissions and scholarship applications

Scholarships for research degrees are available to international and domestic students. You can increase your chances of gaining a scholarship by having an established list of published research papers in internationally recognised peer-reviewed journals.
