Note 1: Feel free to register and submit forms and research proposals prior to these dates. Especially for research proposals, Monash MURPA research mentors will be available to assist you and provide feedback prior to the closing date.

Note 2: Successful MURPA applicants are encouraged to travel earlier, say between Christmas and New Year, to give themselves some free time to settle in and do sightseeing before the real work on their research projects begins.

Note 3: MURPA is not just about an exciting opportunity to do research. It is also a great opportunity to experience another culture and lifestyle.
