Find a supervisor. Visit the Researchers website to search potential supervisor profiles, including their research expertise, published works and contact details.
Once you have identified which supervisor you would like to work with, or which College offers research supervision in your area of interest, you will need to check to see what the pre-application process is for that College.
Most Colleges will ask applicants to identify and secure the support of a potential supervisor before they can proceed to an application for admission. However, some Colleges ask applicants to submit a short description of their proposed area of research as an expression of interest and a summary of their academic qualifications, including grades, to a central contact first.
