Commencement of your HDR program is fixed to a specific period within the research quarter stated on your offer of admission, and/or offer of scholarship support. If you are unable to start at this time you will be required to seek approval for a delayed commencement and a deferral to your offer(s).

If you are accepting your unconditional offer of admission, please complete the Agreement and Response to Offer (ARO), Payment Details form (if applicable) and Financial Declaration, which form part of your offer of admission. Please email the completed forms, along with any other supporting documentation, to graduateschool@uq.edu.au.

Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) is compulsory for international students studying at UQ on a student visa. This has to be in place for the full program duration before the Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) can be issued.

Any self-funded student with a current offer will need to submit evidence of financial capacity to support studies for at least two years for PhD and one year for MPhil before the Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) can be issued. This will include:

  • Tuition fees for eight research quarters for PhD and four research quarters for MPhil,
  • Living allowance costs. The Department of Home Affairs specifies the minimum requirement.
  • Additional funds to support any dependent family members that will accompany you.

Please note, UQ does not keep evidence of financial capacity on file.

If you are declining your offer of admission please email graduateschool@uq.edu.au to advise, including the reason. The Graduate School will then pass this information onto your enrolling school/institute on your behalf.
