Being offered a place

Successful applicants

If students are offered a confirmed place in November, the School will endeavour to notify them via the email address they list on their applications. All offers are dependent on confirmation from the relevant College or external University, that a student has completed the requirements for the award of a pass degree.  Non-ANU applicants will receive an official offer letter from Student Administration. This offer will include details on how to accept your offer and how to complete your enrolment with the College of Science (or the College of Arts and Social Sciences).

Note: Students who are made an offer will be asked to rank supervisors with whom they would wish to work with. Instructions about the process will be given to the students at the time of the offer.

Unsuccessful applicants

We strive to notify unsuccessful applicants for Semester 1 entry via email by 24 December.

Unsuccessful ANU applicants are normally notified by email, by the Research School of Psychology, before Christmas. Unsuccessful non-ANU applicants receive official notification via Student Administration, which may not occur before January.

Fees & scholarships

The Honours Program at ANU is Commonwealth-supported for Australian/New Zealand citizens and permanent residents.  International students are liable for the payment of full-fees.  The fee is the same for the BPsych (Hons), BSc (Psychology) (Honours), BSc (Honours) and BA (Honours).

ANU offers Honours Scholarships (across all disciplines) each year, selection for which is based on academic merit. Students must apply for scholarships at the same time they apply for admission to the program. Students applying for the Honours program in Psychology are not required to have identified a supervisor before submitting an application for the program or for a scholarship. The 200-word statement to support an application for an Honours scholarship should outline a student's research interest. Supervisors for Honours in Psychology are not confirmed until the beginning of the semester.
