How do I find out the status of my application for a higher degree by research?

You will be notified of the status of your application by the Graduate Research School. Please do not refer to the application status listed within the My Applications tab in eStudent for an update on your application status. This section is used only for coursework degree applicants and will not reflect an accurate application status for higher degree by research applications.

The higher degree by research applications review process can take 6 to 8 weeks. Your application is first assessed by the relevant Enrolling School for supervision capacity and resources to support your research, followed by a Faculty review to endorse your application. 

Queries relating to application status may be directed to the Graduate Research School after the approximate review time frame listed above has lapsed.
