The University of Western Australia International Postgraduate Research Scholarships


Applications are invited from suitably qualified international students to apply for International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (IPRS) to undertake the degree of Master by Research or Doctorate by Research at The University of Western Australia. Application for a scholarship is also an application for admission to the University.

The purpose of the IPRS scheme is to attract top quality international postgraduate students to areas in which the University has specialised research strengths and to support Australia’s research effort. Successful applicants can expect to become members of a research team working under the direction of senior researchers and in an area which has attracted external resources.

These scholarships cover International Tuition Fees for up to four (4) years, as well as Overseas Student Health Cover.

Successful applicants will also be awarded a full living allowance scholarship and UWA Top-Up Scholarship (the total combined value for 2015 is $29,000 per annum).  Please see the entry for Australian Postgraduate Awards and UWA Safety-Net Top-Up Scholarships for further information.
