Your application will go through the admission to candidature and/or scholarship selection process once submitted.
Program applications are accepted all year round. It is however important to note that scholarship application closing dates still apply.
Applicants seeking admission to candidature only can expect to receive an outcome on their application within 6 weeks of receipt of application by School of Graduate Research.
Transferring from another university
If you would like to transfer to RMIT from another university you will be required to follow the standard application process. Once you have applied, the School of Graduate Research (SGR) will contact your previous university to determine the length of time of your previous enrolment, and the status of your candidature, in order to determine your remaining period of candidature at RMIT. Transfers with remaining periods of candidature of less than 12 months are only approved in extraordinary circumstances.
You will be asked to complete RMIT Confirmation of Candidature or the Mid-Candidature Review, unless you can provide evidence of completion of these milestones at your previous university to be exempted.
