Postgraduate research pre-assessment process
You will need to undertake the the Faculty of Law’s pre-assessment process prior to making a formal central application to UTS. The process is outlined below.
To initiate the process, please email the Law Research Office:
- Copies of your academic transcripts (in English)
- Your resumé/CV
- A short (500 words) outline of your proposed topic
- A cover letter expressing why you wish to do postgraduate research and why you would like to study at UTS Faculty of Law
The object of the pre-assessment process is that it enables us to give you advice about whether:
- You are likely to meet our eligibility requirements;
- We are able to offer supervision in your chosen research area;
- You appear to have a viable research topic.
This can save you time and avoid the burden of a formal application if it is unlikely that we would be able to offer you a place.
You should commence the informal assessment process months ahead of closing dates for formal applications as pre-assessment to admission may take several weeks or months depending upon the amount of information we need from you and state of readiness of your research proposal.
For more in-depth advice on how to prepare the above documentation, see our information pack below.
The Faculty Research Officer will get back to you within 2-3 weeks with an evaluation of academic merit based on these documents.
Please contact the Faculty Research Officer by email if you have any further queries regarding pre-assessment.
