Published on Mar 14 2009 // Masters, Oceania, Postgraduate, Scholarships in Australia

The Graduate Studies in International Affairs program offers up to four Hedley Bull Scholarships each year for full-time study in the Master of Arts (International Relations) commencing in semester one. Applicants must meet the admission requirements of the Master of Arts (International Relations).

When applying for the MA (International Relations), eligible applicants for the Hedley Bull Scholarship should include a covering letter indicating their interest in being considered for the scholarship and making the case for being granted one. The covering letter together with the application for the MA (International Relations) (including transcripts and three academic references) will be considered as the full application for the scholarship. There is no need to provide a separate application. The scholarship provides a full-fee waiver for three full-time sessions (semesters). This amounts to 48 units of graduate coursework and a 24-unit thesis session.

Closing date for receipt of complete application for scholarship: 30 October 2009


MA (International Relations) (MAIR)
Master of International Affairs (MIA)
Applicants for the MAIR and MIA should normally have obtained at least second class honours, division A, in their Australian bachelor degree, or the equivalent in a degree from other countries. The degree should normally be in any discipline of the social sciences or the humanities. ‘Equivalence’ may be met by a very good four-year bachelor degree, a very good graduate diploma, or a very good three-year bachelor degree and substantial relevant work experience demonstrating a capacity for analysis and research. As a guide, ‘very good’ normally refers to an A/B+ average and above, or distinction average and above.

Graduate Diploma in International Affairs (GDIA)
Applicants for the GDIA require a ‘very good’ bachelor degree. Although a degree in the social sciences would be an advantage, degrees in other areas will be considered.

English Language Requirements
International applicants should note that the University requires evidence of an adequate standard of English. Unless undergraduate studies were undertaken in Australia, Canada (if English was the language of instruction), New Zealand, the UK or the USA, international students will normally be required to produce evidence of one of the following:

  • a verification of a tertiary degree of at least two years conducted entirely in English.
  • an IELTS overall band score of 6.5 together with a score of at least 6.0 in all components
  • a minimum TOEFL score of: 570 (old system); 230 (new system) and a Test of Written English (TWE) score of 4.5; or 90 (internet-based), with a minimum of 20 in all four sections. (You should check with the Australian Diplomatic Mission in your country whether TOEFL is accepted for student visa purposes.)
