Postgraduate

The University of Adelaide is ideally suited for postgraduate research in German Studies.

The Barr-Smith library houses one of the best German journal collections in the country; it also contains a specialized European Documentation Centre (EDC) and a huge German literature microfiche collection, donated to it by the German government in 1996. The city of Adelaide is also home to the Lutheran Archives, a key resource for anyone wishing to carry out research about German settlers in South Australia.

  • Information for Prospective Students

    Prospective postgraduate students are expected to have obtained a recognised competency in German Studies such as an Honours degree or a Research Master degree or a coursework Master where they have scored highly in the research component. The process is highly competitive and publications markedly increase the chances of success.

    Note: to be competitive for an international PhD scholarship you require a high grade, first class honours degree or an equivalent Masters coursework degree with a substantial theses component.
