The School of Physics and Astronomy offers world-leading postgraduate programs that can lead to a Master's by research (MPhil) or doctorate (PhD) in a wide variety of specialist research areas. You can enroll in one of these programs through Monash Graduate Research Office (MGRO).

The MGRO website includes information on How to Apply:

  • The first step in the application process is to check your eligibility.
  • The second step is to contact a prospective supervisor in the area of research you wish to pursue.
  • Finally your prospective supervisor will recommend that you seek an Invitation to Apply from the School of Physics & Astronomy.

Postgraduate study in the School of Physics & Astronomy

As part of obtaining an "Invitation to Apply" from the School, you will need to choose an appropriate research project and find a suitable research supervisor for this project - see Research Projects.

Students are allocated two supervisors to guide their research, and their progress is monitored by a panel made up of the two supervisors, the Postgraduate Coordinator and two academics that are independent.
