Find a supervisor
Before you start the application process, you need to find a supervisor in your area of interest.
UTS is home to world-leading academic staff working across a wide range of disciplines who are committed to mentoring the next generation of research leaders. Use the tool below to find a supervisor in your area of research interest.
Once you've found a potential supervisor, it's important to make contact with them to discuss your proposal and ensure they agree to supervise you.
You can contact the academic by email and include:
- A few short sentences introducing yourself and how your research fits with the potential supervisor
- A copy of your current CV (Download CV template)
- A draft of your research proposal
- Copies of your Academic transcripts
Please allow a couple of weeks for potential supervisors to respond to your email. If they are not available to supervise you, they may refer you to another suitable academic.
You can also contact the research office in your discipline area for assistance in finding the right UTS supervisor to fit your needs.
If you intend to study in the UTS Business School, Graduate School of Health, Institute for Sustainable Futures or Faculty of Law, your faculty or institute will assist in organising a supervisor for you as part of the pre-admission process.
Note: The Faculty of Health requires a Health Supervision Agreement Form (docx, 44kb) to be uploaded with your online application.
