International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (UNIPRS) – University of Newcastle

University of Newcastle International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (UNIPRS) are funded by the Research Division. The scholarship is for tuition fees, a Faculty-funded living allowance ($20,007 p.a. in 2008), and the payment of Overseas Students Health Cover.

Duration: three years for a PhD degree and two years for a Master’s degree, less any previous tenure towards a research higher degree at the same level.

Application is open to students from all countries with the exception of Australian and New Zealand citizens or Australian permanent residents.

Applicants must provide evidence of English proficiency before the closing date. The TOEFL computer based test requires a score of at least 232 (with an Essay Rating of at least 4.5) or a paper based test score of at least 575 (with an Essay Rating of at least 4.5); or an IELTS score of at least 6.5 with no individual subtest score less than 6.0.

Scholarship Eligibility Criteria
Applicants must meet eligibility requirements before the closing date and must have an offer of admission to a research higher degree. Applicants for all schemes must have completed at least four years of undergraduate study and have attained Honours Class 1 or equivalent.

Applicants whose first language is not English must submit evidence of attaining:
  • TOEFL score of at least 575 (minimum score of 4.5 in the TWE) – paper based test. Computer based test requires score of at least 232 (minimum score of 4.5 Essay Rating);
  • IELTS score of at least 6.5 with no individual subtest score less than 6.
Note that applicants are not eligible for:
  • Support for a research Master degree if they already hold a research Master degree or equivalent;
  • Support from any RHD scholarship if they already hold a research Doctoral degree or equivalent;
  • UNRS if they have previously held an equivalent scholarship for six months or more, for the same award.
Scholarship Selection and Offer Procedures
Scholarship applications will be accepted between 1 January and 31 August each year. To apply for a scholarship you must answer the relevant questions on the application form.

Scholarships are awarded to eligible applicants on the basis of academic merit and through a highly competitive process. The award of research scholarships may also take into account areas of research strength or areas of research in line with the strategic directions of the University.

The research scholarship criteria for all faculties will have the common components of academic achievement and research/scholarly attainments (relative to opportunity).

Applicants may elect to be considered in more than one discipline area. A complete separate application must be lodged for each discipline, and each will be considered separately within the relevant faculty. An offer of admission to candidature and/or offer of scholarship in one discipline will not be transferable to another.

Applicants with an incomplete award at the same level who have completed more than two full-time equivalent semesters towards a research Master or more than four full-time equivalent semesters towards a PhD at the commencement of the following academic year will not be considered for the award of a scholarship.

First round scholarship offers will be sent to the applicant’s correspondence address by mid-December. Offers must be accepted within 14 days, therefore it is important that applicants ensure they collect mail from their correspondence address.

Any second-round offers will be made in early February.

Scholarships should normally commence and enrolment should be finalised by 31 August in the year for which the offer of a place was made. Scholarship recipients must normally be enrolled full-time in their research higher degree.

Application deadline: 31 August each year.
