How to submit an expression of interest in PhD projects
Garvan is an affiliate of UNSW. Students at Garvan are enrolled in Doctor of Philosophy (Medicine) through UNSW Sydney.
Before expressing an interest in our available projects, you should first ensure you meet UNSW eligibility criteria for admission to a PhD.
UNSW admission and scholarship application requirements can be found at Research Higher Degree Programs.
UNSW also has English language requirements. All applicants, whether domestic or international, must provide evidence their English ability meets the minimum UNSW English Language Requirements
If the self-assessment tool suggests you’re likely to be eligible for admission and are likely to be competitive for a UNSW scholarship, then please submit an expression of interest to Garvan by selecting the relevant project (above), and filling the online form.
Shortlisted applicants will be contacted by Garvan and we will assist you in lodging an application for admission to UNSW online.
Closing date for expression of interest
- 1 September 2019 (for those who wish to start their studies in Term 1 2020)
As Garvan is a not-for-profit organisation, it is unlikely that a research program would have the funds to take on a postgraduate student without scholarship funding for the duration of their PhD. It would therefore be helpful to upload the result from the UNSW HDR Self-Assessment Tool.
