You need to have the backing of an academic at Flinders who is willing to act as your supervisor before you can submit a formal application for admission.
You can search for potential supervisors here. When contacting supervisors we recommend that you communicate your research intent in a concise but well thought through manner - academic staff will receive a lot of similar requests and are only likely to respond positively to the ones that demonstrate commitment and ability. It is also a good idea to attach a CV (no longer than two pages) and a copy of your academic transcripts.
If you are having trouble finding a supervisor you can submit an Expression of Interest. The Expression of Interest assists with organising a potential supervisor and a suitable research project. You can submit an Expression of Interest here.
