- About Deakin
Admission to HDR candidature is normally granted on the basis of a bachelor's degree with honours or a master's degree with a substantial research component. 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 HDR 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.
Application forms, a guide to candidature and scholarships and other essential information for HDR candidates can be found on the Research Services website at www.deakin.edu.au/research/admin/hdradmin
