Entry requirements - general
Applicants must have demonstrated evidence of a high standard of research ability. This is normally an Honours year to H2B (60%+) standard, or a coursework master degree with a substantial thesis. However, other evidence of research ability may be considered and could include a thesis as part of an international undergraduate degree; relevant refereed publications; research awards; or research experience.
For more information please visit the Deakin Research - Higher Degrees by Research page.
Entry requirements - specific
Entry to Higher Degree by Research candidature is normally granted on the basis of a bachelor's degree with honours (that is, a four year degree where the final year includes advanced studies in the discipline, research methodology training and a research thesis) or a master's degree with a substantial research component, in a field of study related to the subject of the proposed research. It is expected that a candidate for a doctoral program will have achieved the standard of at least second class honours (upper division), and that a candidate for a master's degree will have achieved the standard of second class honours. Other qualifications and experience may be considered for entry if the Higher Degrees by Research Committee accepts them as equivalent to those above. Where entry is sought based on alternative qualifications, a key requirement is that there has been some research activity leading to a thesis or equivalent publications. The HDR Committee looks for evidence of research potential and demonstrated ability to produce a significant report - two qualities which will be essential for successful candidature.
