The Chancellor's Prize for Excellence in the PhD Thesis is awarded each year to up to six nominees. A seventh award may be made to an Indigenous student. You are eligible for nomination if you completed your degree in the previous year.

Nominations are made by faculties on the basis of:

  • International recognition and impact of the research
  • Publications or other research outputs  that arise from or relate to your thesis
  • Recognition of the research (by professional organisations, prizes and awards, invitations to conferences, etc).

Preference is given to theses that are passed without amendment. Theses passed with minor amendments may also be considered.
