Are you applying for more than one GSHSS course?

If you would like to apply for more than one degree within the Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences, please be sure to register your preferences online.

Keep in mind when applying for multiple programs that:

  • Second-preference programs are normally assessed only if your first preference application is unsuccessful. If you would like more than one preference to be assessed, you’ll need to apply and send a special request to arts-gradadmissions@unimelb.edu.au
  • If application for your first preference is unsuccessful, the Selection Committee will normally make an alternative offer as a pathway into your first preference (based on your individual case). This means you don't have to apply for lower level programs as back-up options
  • If Commonwealth Supported Places (CSPs) are available for the degree you apply for, you'll automatically be considered for an Australian Fee Place if your CSP application is unsuccessful. So, you don't need to lodge separate applications for both fee types
