If you want to apply to be a postgraduate research student, we have different requirements.
How to apply
We have made the application process as simple as possible for you. Please follow these steps to apply for postgraduate study by coursework:
- Search for the course you are interested in using our course search.
- Select the program of study you wish to apply for.
- Click apply to proceed with your application.
The University of Sydney accepts scanned documents submitted online in support of applications for admission to courses of study. All supporting documents must be true and complete records. You should be prepared to provide original documents or original certified copies of supporting documents upon request at any time.
If the results of your previous study won't be available by the closing date, you can still submit an application. We will consider your application if you forward any outstanding results once they become available.
There is no generic closing date for applications to postgraduate courses. Please use the Find a course website to check the closing date for the course you are interested in.
If you are applying within Australia you are required to apply at least 10 weeks before the start of the next available semester.
Outcome of your application
Our Admissions Office will send you formal notification of the result of your application. (Please note that this step does not apply to applications made through the Universities Admissions Centre.) We recommend that you check any offer of admission carefully. If you have any questions about the terms of the offer, you can contact the faculty office and your intended department.
If for any reason you are unable to accept an offer, please let both the department and the faculty office know. The University may then offer that place to another applicant.
We do not retain unsuccessful applications and declined offers indefinitely. If you want to reapply at a later time, you need to complete a new application.
