Applications are invited from international students for scholarships to undertake a master's by research or Doctor of Philosophy at The University of Western Australia.

  1. Scholarships
  2. Eligibility
  3. Conditions


There are two major scholarships schemes:

These schemes seek to attract top quality international postgraduate students to areas in which the University has specialised research strengths and to support Australia's research effort.

Successful applicants can expect to become members of a research team, working under the direction of senior researchers and in an area which has attracted external resources.

All travel and relocation costs are the responsibility of the applicant.

  • may be disadvantaged if the Scholarships Committee cannot make a comparison with The University of Western Australia's standards, particularly in relation to the class of honours achieved, that is first or second class honours
  • intend to enrol as a full-time candidate for a master's degree by research or a PhD degree
  • will be commencing their course in the semester following the scholarship round in which they have successfully applied.
