Interested in doing a PhD in social psychology? Interested in working at one of the top 4 psychology departments in Australia and the top Australia university under 50 years old? Well, here's some handy info...
The University's closing dates for international students to apply for scholarships is 31st March and 15th September each year. The University assesses all scholarship applications on a case-by-case basis. However, as a rough guideline, you need to get a scholarship score that is over 18 out of 20 in order to stand a chance of being awarded a scholarship. Scores are calculated as follows:
(1) Your Grade Point Average (GPA) is calculated on the last two full-time equivalent years of your Bachelor’s degree, excluding ungraded subjects but including fails. You need to calculate your GPA for this period on a 7-point scale. See here for more details about how to calculate your GPA and here for an online calculator. A minimum GPA of 5.25 out of 7 is required to be eligible. However, the mean GPA tends to be 6.0 out of 7.0. So, you need to have a GPA above 6.0 in order to stand a chance. You then need to convert your GPA to an 8-point scale (i.e., multiply your GPA by 1.1429).
(2) Extra Research Attainments can give you an extra 12 marks to add to your GPA score out of 8 in order to give you a maximum score of 20.
