All students enrol for
their degree through a university and undertake their research at
the Telethon Institute under the supervision of an Institute
researcher. Eligibility and conditions for completion of the degree
are primarily those of the enrolling universities.
Enrolment through a university department can be accomplished either by contacting a potential supervisor at the Telethon Institute or, particularly for honours studies, by contacting a course supervisor at the university of choice. Most university departments welcome supervision at research institutes.
For PhD and other postgraduate students, scholarships can be obtained by applying for the University and Australian Postgraduate Awards or to other organisations such as the National Health and Medical Research Council. The applications must be made via a university but Telethon Institute supervisors can help select the appropriate department and assist to make the application. Some supervisors can also arrange PhD and postgraduate stipends or have access to other scholarships.
Students should contact prospective supervisors or project leaders for information.
Information about our divisions, their projects and prospective supervisors can be found under Our Research
