HDR Application information

1. Find a supervisor

Prospective students will need to ascertain whether or not the ANU College of Business and Economics offers research supervision in your area of interest by using the ANU Researchers Database. There, you can flag profiles of ANU researchers and view their expertise and published works. If you have any difficulty finding a researcher using the database, contact the College HDR office, hdr.cbe@anu.edu for assistance.

2. Pre-application

Once you have identified one or more supervisors you may like to work with, please contact the HDR office, hdr.cbe@anu.edu.au with their names and provide a brief description of the area of research you are interested in. Full details outlining the pre-application process will be explained in a return email.

3. Application

You may apply for admission if you have been advised that it is appropriate to do so, or if you have secured the support of a potential supervisor.

Before submitting your application to ANU, please make sure that you send the referee report form to your referees, and ask them to submit their completed reports directly to the University.

Once you have submitted your completed application (including all supporting documentation), your application will be processed and assessed.

Research applications are made directly to ANU using the Students@ANU Apply Online tool.
