Frequently asked questions

I have an offer for a Higher Degree by Research and the COVID-19 situation is affecting my ability to commence studies. What can I do?

If you are arriving from overseas to commence your HDR, you should defer your commencement until you are able to arrive in Australia without being required to self-isolate. Please refer to the Department of Home Affairs for the latest advice on travel restrictions.

You can defer your HDR by contacting the Graduate Research School via admissions-grs@uwa.edu.au. We can make special arrangements, including deferred commencement, for most HDR students, and most HDR courses have flexible start dates.
