2Minimum level of academic achievement  Applicants will have achieved an overall H1 (80-100%) or H2A (75-79%) grade in a relevant honours or Masters degree.  Applicants who have completed professional degrees such as a BVSc or DVM will be assessed individually.

3. Relevance of the Degree  The completed degree must be in an area that is relevant to the intended PhD, including sufficient specialisation such that the applicant will have already developed an understanding and appreciation of a body of knowledge relevant to the intended PhD. Professional experience in the area of the intended PhD may be deemed equivalent.

4. Evidence of research ability  Applicants are normally required to have completed a research project, component, subject or group of subjects that accounts for at least 25% of their work (i.e. Honours year), or 25% of one year accumulated over the length of a Masters course.

5. Currency of applicant's knowledge of the discipline  The applicant's degree/s and/or professional experience must demonstrate that their knowledge of the discipline in which they plan to undertake their research higher degree is current. It is therefore expected that an applicant will have completed their tertiary studies and/or any relevant professional experience in the 10 years immediately prior to their intended entry to a PhD.

6. Assessment of level of suitability Applicants should make contact with an FVAS academic staff member who they would like to work with by filling in an Expression of Interest.
