If you're applying online, you can submit electronic copies of documents with your application. But you must submit certified copies of your documents, via post or in person, before you start your degree.
If you're submitting a paper-based application, either via post or in person, you must include certified copies of supporting documents with your application.

To help your supervisory team assess your skills and abilities, and to determine any optional coursework and electives to be included in your program of study, we recommend that you complete the research degree skills audit (PDF file, 696.57 KB) and attach it as a supporting document to your application.
Once you've started your research degree, you'll discuss the skills audit with your supervisor or faculty advisor at the beginning of your candidature. You'll identify your strengths and any gaps in your skills, along with your learning objectives and career goals. This will help you plan your coursework and any other training requirements.
The skills in the audit are based on the AQF learning objectives you'll need to complete your research degree. These skills will help you in a career in academia or research, and also include broader skills sets that can help you succeed in any industry. Many research degree graduates go on to careers outside academia, so we want to prepare you for wherever you degree takes you.
If professional experience is an entry requirement for your course, or you believe it will add to your application, you must provide statements from your employers.
These statements should be on company letterhead, be signed and dated, and include:

For a copy of the Individual Student Agreement (Part B), email our Research degree partnerships team.
