Accepting your offer
If you’ve received an offer to study at UQ, congratulations!
Read your offer letter carefully for information about how to accept your offer.
Preparing to commence
Once you’ve accepted your offer, you can start planning to commence your HDR program.
- Email your supervisor and let them know when you plan to commence your HDR program and arrange to meet them after you arrive.
- Prepare funds to cover at least 4–6 weeks of living costs upon your arrival in Australia.
- Contact the Graduate School 2 weeks prior to the commencement of your chosen research quarter to confirm the date of your arrival and arrange the formal commencement process.
You must submit all your outstanding documents and information to be able to commence.
Once you commence, it may take up to 2 weeks to get access to systems.
If you're unable to commence within the research quarter stated on your offer of admission and/or offer of scholarship, you may be able to delay your commencement and defer your offer(s).
Delaying before accepting offer
If you haven’t accepted your offer, you can request a deferral of up to 1 research quarter when responding to your offer in the online application portal.
You’ll then receive a ‘deferred offer of admission and/or offer of scholarship support’ that you’ll need to formally accept or decline.
Delaying after accepting your offer
Email firstname.lastname@example.org stating the reason(s) why you can't commence in the agreed research quarter.
You'll only be permitted 1 deferral.
If you're also deferring your offer of scholarship, it must only be until the next research quarter after the commencement research quarter stated in the original offer.
If you’ve received a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) this will be cancelled and a new CoE will be issued once the deferment has been accepted.
