Expression of Interest (EOI) for Postgraduate Candidature and/or Scholarship

As a prospective PhD or Master's by research candidate you will need to complete and submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) form in order to be considered for an invitation to apply for candidature and/or scholarship.

Identify a research supervisor/s

Having supervision is integral to the application process and an 'invitation to apply' cannot proceed without a prospective supervisor initiating the process.

You will be required to provide the name of at least one supervisor you wish to supervise your research project in the EOI form.

All postgraduate research students at Monash University are however supervised by at least two supervisors.
