Secondly, you will need to find a research area and an appropriate primary supervisor.

  • Investigate the Research Groups within the School.
  • Use the search engine to find a researcher by Field of Research (FOR) or by Supervisor Name.
  • Use the search engine on the UNSW Research Gateway to find the sections and supervisors that best align with your area of research. If you are using a key word or tag, please use the search engine on the top right-hand corner of the Research Gateway.
  • Establish contact with your potential supervisor. Students must have an interview (face-to-face or Skype) with their prospective supervisor before submitting their application.

In your discussion with your potential supervisor, you should also confirm the correct program you wish to apply for; please refer to the Programs at SoMS for the list of program names and codes.

Note: Proof of correspondence with a potential supervisor is required for your application in Step 5.
