2Applicants complete and sign an Expression of Interest (EoI) form

Send the completed and signed EoI (along with your CV and academic transcripts) to potential supervisors for review and endorsement.

The EoI signed by a potential supervisor can be used as an invitation to apply when submitting a research degree application.

The Faculty does not have a deadline for obtaining an invitation to apply. However if you are applying for a scholarship, strict application closing dates apply. As such, scholarship applicants should allow plenty of time to have that discussion with the potential supervisor, gain their support and obtain a valid invitation to apply.

Exception: PhD (Clinical Psychology) and PhD (Clinical Neuropsychology) applicants are not required to submit an invitation to apply or a research proposal with their application. For full details on the application process and eligibility criteria for these degrees, refer to Clinical Doctoral Programs Admission Process.
