The Australian National University provides PhD students with a vibrant research community and outstanding program support. When selecting a research program, an institution's reputation is everything. ANU is one of the world's leading universities, and the smart choice for your research program.
As a PhD student you will work with increased independence, under the direction of a supervisory panel of experts in the field. Your research will make an original and important contribution to human knowledge, research and development.
To be admitted to our Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) program you need to have completed an Australian Bachelor Degree with at least Upper Second Class Honours (First Class Honours is usually required) or its international equivalent, or a Graduate Diploma or Master Degree with a significant research thesis component. There must also be a supervisor at ANU, normally a member of the Fenner School's academic staff, who has agreed to supervise your research.
You must also meet the University’s English Language Admission Requirements for Students.
You may be granted admission if you can demonstrate that you have a background equivalent to these qualifications.
If you think you qualify, check out our guidance on how to apply, which also gives guidance on how to find a supervisor.Indicative fees Domestic International
