Postgraduate research, or a higher degree by research (HDR) program, is a research-focused degree usually undertaken by someone who has completed a previous degree with a significant research component.
Postgraduate research degrees include Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and professional doctorates.
To be eligible to be considered for admission to a postgraduate research degree at ANU, you must already have an Australian Bachelor Degree with at least upper second class honours (first class honours is usually required) or its international equivalent, or a Graduate Diploma or Master Degree with a significant research thesis component, and there must be a supervisor at ANU available to supervise your research.
How to apply
Applications are open throughout the year.
However, if you are applying for a research scholarship then be aware of the scholarship application deadline. You must indicate on your admission application form whether you still wish to be considered for admission if your application for a scholarship is unsuccessful.
