Postgraduate Admission

The University of Notre Dame Australia offers a range of Higher Degree by Research (HDR) programs. Further information about the programs on offer can be found in the Postgraduate (Research) Course Guide (domestic/ international ) or via the online overview of programs in Fremantle and Sydney.

Notre Dame’s HDR Education Coordinators can be contacted for expert advice on HDR degrees offered on the Fremantle and Broome campuses in Western Australia and on the Sydney campus in New South Wales.

The admission process for these postgraduate degree programs at Notre Dame differs from the enrolments into the University’s undergraduate courses.

Applications are then assessed by the Research Office and the respective School.
