About this course
The Dean of the Faculty of Science will appoint a perusal committee to determine whether the candidate meets the entry requirements. To enable this the candidate will be asked to provide the Faculty of Science with a detailed CV (including an up to date list of publications); a statement of research impact and a statement detailing how their field of study is closely related to the core scientific disciplines within the Faculty of Science. The perusal committee will then decide, in general terms, if the quality and quantity and area of research justifies submitting the work for assessment.
If appropriate the candidate will then be invited to submit three soft-bound thesis copies. The thesis should consist of reprints (PDF files from the journal are acceptable) of publications and/or papers. In addition, an introduction to the works being presented for examination should be included. Where the candidate has collaborated with others, a signed statement indicating the content of their share in the work must also be included. Candidates should be able to show that they have been responsible for a significant portion of the research work.
Once the submission has been approved for examination by the perusal committee, candidates are enrolled in the subject SCIE90001 Doctor of Science and are invoiced as indicated at http://futurestudents.unimelb.edu.au/admissions/fees/grad-dom/aust-fee-place-fees/australian_graduate_fees_table
