Commencement in a research higher degree program is fixed to a specific period within the research quarter.

If you are unable to commence your HDR study within the research quarter specified on your offer of admission, please contact the Graduate School to request a deferral to your commencement date.

Please advise:

  1. The reason(s) why you are unable to commence your HDR study within the agreed research quarter, and
  2. The research quarter that you now intend to commence your HDR study.

The deferral request will be reviewed, and if approved the offer of admission and, if applicable, offer of scholarship support will be re-issued to reflect the new commencement research quarter.

You are required to formally accept or decline the deferred offer of admission and/or offer of scholarship support.
