Do I need to meet the ELP requirements before applying for a higher degree by research (HDR) scholarship?
Yes. In order for your application to be considered for an HDR scholarship, you must be able to provide evidence of meeting the University’s English language proficiency (ELP) requirements.
If you are applying in the annual scholarship round, you must provide evidence of meeting ELP requirements by the closing date for that round.
If you applying outside of the annual scholarship round, you must provide evidence of meeting ELP requirements when you lodge your application.
Applicants who do not provide ELP evidence will not go forward for scholarship consideration. Your scholarship application will be withdrawn and will count as one of your two scholarship application attempts in five years.
You can check the English language requirements for your HDR program on the University’s Degree and Career Finder.
Please note that you may apply for admission only without providing evidence of meeting ELP. If you meet admission requirements, you will be issued an admission offer subject to meeting ELP prior to enrolment.
