About the University of Adelaide

The University of Adelaide is one of Australia’s leading Group of Eight, research-intensive universities and is consistently ranked among the top 1% of universities in the world. Established in 1874, it is Australia’s third oldest university with a strong reputation for preparing educated leaders and delivering research outcomes that contribute to local, national and global well-being. University of Adelaide employees enjoy a range of benefits and favourable work conditions that include opportunities for career development and advancement.

Do you want to do your Master’s or PhD with us?

You will first need to apply to and be accepted by the University of Adelaide. If you are applying for an ARC or equivalent scholarship/fellowship, please feel free to contact us first.

For potential MSc students: If you acquired research experience during your undergraduate degree, please tell us about it. Publications in respected conferences or international journals, an undergrad thesis, a Capstone project, an undergrad research assistant position or a directed studies project make you a stronger candidate.

For potential PhD students: Tell us about your previous graduate work and include PDFs of your thesis and your best and most recent publications. PhD applicants should have a strong background in computer science or software engineering research (or a related field).

Summer Interns

I regularly offer Summer Research Scholarships and Honours and Masters projects (internal list). If you have your own ideas or if you like something from here, then take the initiative and contact me.

Q: Can I help you get in?

A: Unlike at some schools, UoA CS admissions decisions are made by a committee, not by individual faculty. Our process permits UoA CS to select the very best applicants from a strong pool. Furthermore, UoA CS as a whole makes a commitment to its students: graduate student funding is not initially tied to particular faculty members or projects, and students are free to switch advisers or research topics. This is one of many factors that makes UoA CS students happy about their experience here.

Q: Will the publications and/or research experience I have gained since completing my qualification(s) add weight to my application?

A: If you ensure that your publication(s) and/or relevant research experience is detailed in your application and uploaded resume, it will be considered. However, the Scholarship committee will pay close attention to the quality of the journal in which the work is published as well as the contribution to the publication made by the applicant. Research outputs are usually assessed in light of the opportunities the applicant has had subsequent to their initial graduation.

Q: What is the likelihood of winning an international scholarship for a Higher Degree by Research?

A: Each round we receive hundreds of applications for a small number of scholarships. Kindly note that the standard of applicants is always extremely high, and the selection process is very competitive. Generally those who have been awarded scholarships in previous international scholarship rounds have completed a Masters degree including a significant research component and have several quality international journal publications with relevant work and research experience. The few applicants who win a scholarship directly out of undergraduate studies have exceptional academic results, high quality international publications and outstanding references. However many deserving applicants miss out each year due to limited availability.
