The Melbourne International Fee Remission Scholarship (MIFRS) is awarded to international students wishing to undertake graduate research degree studies at the University of Melbourne. MIFRSs are funded by the University with each faculty having a limited number to award.

To be considered for an MIFRS, applicants need to have an unconditional offer of a place in a graduate research degree course (eg masters by research, PhD or other research doctorate) at the University of Melbourne.

Academic Requirements

The academic requirements to be considered for the graduate research scholarships are the same as those that apply to entry to the PhD, and these requirements apply even if a scholarship is sought to undertake a masters by research.

The key academic requirements that applicants must meet are:
  • Completion of tertiary studies that are at least equivalent to a four-year honours degree at an Australian university, and
  • Applicants normally need to have completed a research project/component as part of their tertiary studies that accounts for at least 25% of their year's work at 4th year or masters level.
Examples of tertiary studies that normally meet the academic requirements include:
  • 3-year bachelors course followed by a 1-year
  • honours [eg. BA(Hons), BCom(Hons)]
  • postgraduate diploma
  • masters preliminary qualification, or
  • masters course
  • 4-year bachelor with honours course [eg. BE(Hons), LLB(Hons)].
Academic merit is the primary selection criterion for graduate research degree scholarships. Demonstrated research potential is also taken into account.
