International candidates are expected to not hold a research qualification regarded by the University of Adelaide to be equivalent to an Australian Research Doctorate degree or, if undertaking a Research Masters degree, not possess a research qualification approved by the University of Adelaide to be equivalent to or higher than an Australian Research Masters degree.
International candidates who haven’t given any evidence of their meeting the minimum English language proficiency requirements for direct entry by the scholarship closing date, or who have completed a Pre-Enrollment English Program to meet the entry conditions for the intended program of study, aren’t qualified.

Citizens and Permanent Residents of Australia, and citizens of New Zealand are all not qualified.
