Higher Degree by Research - Expression of Interest
Completing and submitting this form is your first step on the path to a higher degree by research (HDR) at the University of Western Australia (UWA).
The information you provide in this form will help us identify a supervisor for your research project, as well as assess your eligibility for a HDR program, and/or your competitiveness for a scholarship.
By requesting to undertake a HDR, you are asking Academic Supervisor(s) and the University to commit a significant amount of time and funds to supporting your research. Scholarship funding is supported by Australian tax payers and the University is obliged to follow Australian government policy with regard to offers of admission and/or scholarship.
The resultant thesis of an HDR must be a substantial and original contribution to scholarship, for example through the discovery of knowledge, the formulation of theories or the innovative re-interpretation of known data and established ideas.
When accepting the offer of a place, you are also accepting the conditions governing the HDR candidancy. You may like to visit the UWA Handbook.to read the rules.
