The goal of this information session is to give some insight into the application process for PhD positions in Australia and overseas. Applying for PhD programs is a complex process, from finding the information you need (e.g., scholarships) to taking various tests, writing applications and going through interviews. Besides, this process differs from country to country.

Peter Bradshaw (University of Bristol), who has recently gone through this process, will talk about what it takes to apply for, and obtain, a PhD position in US and UK, while David Warton (UNSW) will discuss the opportunities of doing a PhD in Australia.

This information session is especially dedicated to interested students in years 3+, but everyone is welcome to attend.
