Deakin University is subject to the Autonomous Sanctions Act and to other laws made by the Australian Government to implement resolutions of the United Nations Security Council (‘International Sanctions Laws’). These laws are subject to change from time to time and may prohibit us from accepting enrolments from students associated with certain sanctioned entities or regimes or, in some circumstances, from students who wish to undertake Higher Degrees by Research (HDR) in particular fields.
Information about the countries affected by the Autonomous Sanctions legislation and the effect of those sanctions on specific countries can be found on the DFAT website.
If your country is on this list, your application to undertake certain research topics in Australia may be subject to scrutiny and approval by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). Where DFAT approval is required, an extra 3 – 6 months waiting time may be added to the application process. It is for this reason that we suggest that you apply well in advance if you are from a country affected by Autonomous Sanctions legislation to ensure that your application can be processed and approved by your proposed commencement date.
We strongly recommend that you contact your intended supervisor prior to lodging an application so that your research project does not conflict with the requirements of the Autonomous Sanctions legislation.
If you have any additional questions about research and research scholarships, contact Deakin International.
