Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP)
Prospective students can find detailed information on our CSP policy and procedure for applying from the School's How to Apply site.
Current students have the opportunity to apply to transfer from a fee-paying to a Commonwealth supported place (if available) in a subsequent ranking cycle (November following admission) providing they have NOT been previously considered for a CSP place. Please visit Policies, Procedures and Forms for information on how to apply.
Research Training Scheme (RTS)
An RTS student must be:
- An Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or New Zealand citizen; and
- enrolled in an accredited Graduate Research Degree leading to a Doctorate degree by research (including a professional Doctorate) or a Masters degree by research.
RTS students may be enrolled on a full-time or part-time basis. Students undertaking a Higher Doctorate, Bachelor Honours or Graduate Coursework Program are not eligible to be RTS students. RTS students are entitled to a maximum of four years full-time equivalent study if undertaking an eligible Doctorate degree by research and a maximum of two years full-time equivalent study if undertaking a Masters Degree by Research. The maximum period of entitlement is calculated from the course commencement date.
International students enrolling in programs run by the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health are typically required to pay the full tuition fee based upon the 'Other Health' Discipline Fee Band.
