Higher Degree by Research - Expression of Interest
Thank you for your interest in a higher degree by research (HDR) at the University of Western Australia.
HDR study is overseen by experienced research academic(s), so provisional confirmation of supervision is your first step on the path to admission.
You will need to identify potential supervisors and you should be informed about their research. You can identify potential supervisors through the UWA Research Repository by keyword search. Please contact potential supervisors directly with your research proposal, CV and academic transcripts to seek supervision.
If you are seeking a RTP stipend scholarship, applications need to be submitted via the online portal iAthena, during the designated application round, after you have secured supervision.
If you have already confirmed academic supervision at UWA, and you are either:
- self-funded, or
- sponsored, or
- applying for a project-specific scholarship, or
- applying for a CSC (UWA-China) scholarship, or
- a domestic student seeking the offer of a place without a stipend,
You may submit a formal application using the PDF application form at this link.
