RMIT admits applicants on the basis of their demonstrated capacity to conduct independent research.
Places are competitive and subject to academic supervisor and resource availability, as well as suitability of the proposed research.
To be eligible for admission to an RMIT University research program, you must:
- Satisfy the University’s entry requirements for research programs; and
- International applicants must also meet the minimum English language requirements.
Scholarship applications must be submitted by advertised, non-negotiable deadlines. If you are applying for an RMIT scholarship, you are encouraged to submit your application well in advance of the deadlines.
International applicants and Australian sanctions laws
RMIT University is subject to Australian sanctions laws that may affect your eligibility to enrol in particular programs. Applicants from sanctioned countries (external link) are encouraged to apply early to allow additional time for your application to be reviewed with respect to applicable sanctions.
Learn more about Australian sanctions laws (external link), including how they are implemented and enforced and the countries affected.
Due to the high volume and complexity of applications, we are temporarily unable to process EOIs/Applications from citizens of countries that are sanctioned under an Australian Federal Government sanctions regime. Please note applicants from Former Yugoslavia, Guinea-Bissau, Iraq, South Sudan & Yemen are still able to be considered for admission.
Any sanctioned applicants that already hold an offer of admission remain eligible to be considered in the end of year scholarship round.
