First Step: Choose a degree and check your eligibility:
Second Step: Develop your research ideas:
Carefully consider the subject of your research and find out if your interests align with any academic members of staff.
Third Step: Find a supervisor:
You’ll need a staff member whose academic interests align with yours and who has agreed to mentor you for the duration of your course. Finding the right supervisor is just as critical as selecting a research topic.
Use the Research Supervisor Connect database to search for current research supervisors and research projects. Use the “Contact Research Expert” button on the project page to submit an enquiry to a supervisor. It’s important for them to understand:
- your academic background and research experience
- the topic or area you would like to research
- why you would like them to supervise your project
- how your proposed research project aligns with their background and experience.
To help support your research enquiry, you should include the following documents:
- Curriculum Vitae.
- Academic transcript for all your completed degrees.
- An initial research proposal. In no more than 2000 words demonstrate how your research experience aligns with the supervisor’s and why you’re interested in this opportunity. You’ll need to tailor your research proposal to each opportunity you enquire about. Refer to our Research Proposal Guidelines.
Fourth Step: Submit your application
Fifth Step: Assessment of your application
We will assess your application and advise you of one of the following outcomes.
- Acceptance to the program (an unconditional offer).
- A conditional offer. For example, if you don’t have all your academic results or if you didn’t meet the English language requirements, we may make you a conditional offer.
- An alternative offer. For example, if the faculty you’d applied to can’t offer a doctorate level, we may give you an alternative offer. You can apply to upgrade this qualification at the end of your research program if you satisfy the minimum academic requirements for the course as outlined in the faculty handbook.
We will not make any offers if you haven’t supplied sufficient documentation
- English proficiency:If English isn’t your first language, you’ll need to provide proof of your English proficiency before you can enroll at the University of Sydney. Please check the full details for the English-language requirements for admission.
