Graduate Research Pathway
Our Graduate Research Pathway secures your place from masters through to PhD, plus a guaranteed scholarship.
If you’re offered a place in our Master of Science (Mathematics and Statistics) with an entry score of at least 80%, you’ll also receive a conditional offer for the Doctor of Philosophy (Science) and a guaranteed scholarship.
By securing your PhD place early on, you can focus on your masters research project and coursework subjects, then transition into a PhD without the stress of reapplying.
How to access the Graduate Research Pathway
To take up this conditional offer, you just need to:
- Achieve a weighted average mark (WAM) of at least 80% over your MSc
- Find a PhD supervisor before starting the PhD (we can assist with this)
- Receive approval from the Head of School.
There’s no need to apply separately for the Graduate Research Pathway. When you apply for the Master of Science (Mathematics and Statistics), you’ll automatically receive an offer if you have an entry score of at least 80%. Look out for further information in your MSc offer letter.
