Section: Fees and scholarships
If you're an Australian citizen or permanent visa holder, or a New Zealand citizen, you won't need to pay tuition fees for your research degree, as long as you complete your degree within:
Within this period, your fees are automatically covered by the Australian Government Research Training Program (RTP) Fees Offset (Domestic). This program covers tuition fees only; you must pay any other study-related costs. Before 1 January 2017, this program was known as the Research Training Scheme (RTS).
If you take longer than the specified time to complete your degree, you may be charged tuition fees for the rest of your study.
If you're transferring from another university, you can only transfer your Australian Government Research Training Program (RTP) Fees Offset (Domestic) (previously Research Training Scheme) funding entitlement if:
Changing universities isn't sufficient grounds to apply for an extension on your RTP Fees Offset.
If you don't receive a scholarship that covers your tuition fees, you must pay the full fees directly to QUT. You must pay your first semester's fees when you accept your offer and then you'll be invoiced before the start of each semester.
You may also be eligible for an Australian Government Research Training Program (RTP) Fees Offset. Read the Australian Government Research Training Program (RTP) Fees Offset (International) rules (PDF file, 140.22 KB).

We review fees annually.

Most of our scholarships are offered as part of our annual scholarship round. Applications for this round close on 30 September each year for students starting their degrees early the next year. If you apply during this round, we'll email you in early December to let you know the outcome of your application.
Annual scholarship round
We offer a smaller number of scholarships for students who apply outside the annual scholarship round. You may need to be nominated by your proposed faculty when applying for scholarships outside the annual scholarship round, including all top-up scholarships.
Some scholarships have specific application deadlines. Check the details of the scholarships you're interested in.
You must register your interest for a scholarship when you apply for your course by completing the 'Scholarship application' section of the research degree application form. Indicate on your application that you want to be considered for a scholarship as part of our annual scholarship round.
If you have already applied for admission and want to be considered in the annual scholarship round, register your interest by contacting the Research Students Centre.
Applications are due by 30 September.
If you're currently completing studies and the outcomes are relevant to your application (such as an honours or masters degree), you should submit an interim transcript of your grades.
If your interim grades are high enough, we may make you a conditional scholarship offer. You'll have to meet the conditions of the offer by 31 March the following year.
If you receive a conditional offer, you should advise the Research Students Centre of your actual outcome or result as soon as possible.
If the outcome/result confirms the predicted score then your score, rank and offer will be confirmed.
If your score is below or above the predicted score then your score and rank will be adjusted and your eligibility for an offer will either be confirmed or revised.
If you're currently enrolled in a research masters, PhD or professional doctorate at QUT, you must apply online through HiQ during our annual scholarship round between 1 September and 30 September.
You'll need to include an up-to-date curriculum vitae (CV) outlining your research achievements. If you're applying for a Women's Re-entry Scholarship (WRE), you also need to submit a supporting statement about how you meet the scholarship criteria.
You can claim allowances for study costs up to 2 years after you complete your research degree. Check your scholarship's rules to determine if you're eligible for allowances.
To claim any allowances, complete the supplier maintenance form (DOC file, 60.5 KB) and submit it, along with your scanned receipts, to the research scholarships team.
