Full Fee Scholarships
The University may award Full Fee Scholarships to outstanding international students from any country to undertake postgraduate research.
Benefits are payment of full tuition fees for two years for a Masters degree by Research and three years for a Doctoral research degree (an extension is possible for doctoral programs only). No other allowances are provided.
Full Fee Scholarships will ONLY be allocated to international students who have been awarded a stipend by the host School, Faculty, Research Institute. Applicants must also hold at least the equivalent of an Australian First Class Honours degree and rank competitively against successful applicants in the current International Major Round Order of Merit list.
Under normal circumstances Full Fee Scholarships will not be provided for students who seek a second (or subsequent) degree which is at the same level, or at a lower level, than the highest one they already hold. However under exceptional circumstances a scholarship may be considered if at least five years have elapsed since the first comparable award was attained and the student can identify a major change in discipline.
Applications will be considered at any time. Applicants must be nominated by their Principal Supervisor and Executive Dean.
Supervisors wishing to nominate students for Full Fee Scholarships should read Application to Establish a Full Fee Scholarship. For advice/assistance completing the 2 required application forms ('Full Fee Scholarship Establishment Form' AND 'Proposal to Establish a Departmental or Externally Funded Scholarship') please contact a Senior Scholarships and Finance Officer at the Adelaide Graduate Centre.
