Application for Division of EFTSL and Support for HDR Students ‐ Approved by RESC 01/13 ‐ Updated 2 of 2
APPLICATION FOR DIVISION (SPLIT) OF EFTSL AND SUPPORT FOR
HIGHER DEGREE BY RESEARCH CANDIDATES BETWEEN COLLEGES
It is often highly desirable for the members of an Advisory Panel to come from different Colleges, to allow for
cross-disciplinary research projects to be undertaken.
It is important, however, that the arrangements of cross‐College Advisory Panel do not disadvantage the candidate
or the Colleges and Divisions concerned. Thus the division of EFTSL needs to be clarified to determine the
allocation of fees and funding. It is also important to ensure that the candidate’s access to research funding and
infrastructure is not compromised. Please consider the below when considering how EFTSL will be split between
colleges, if applicable.
It is assumed that the College with the majority EFTSL will meet these requirements unless otherwise specified.
Supervision costs: What are the relative contributions of the different members of the Advisory Panel?
Project funding: How is the HDR candidates’ project being funded? If the funds are coming from the
Advisory Panel there needs to be agreement as to what funding will be provided and for what purposes. If
the funding is coming from the Minimum Resources Funding alone, which College(s) are responsible for
providing such funding?
Infrastructure: Where is the candidate to be based? Which College is providing the equipment required
such as desk, laboratory space, specialist equipment?
College funding: Which College will assume primary responsibility for the minimum resources policy
requirements being met and hich College will be responsible for the candidate’s access to HDR
Enhancement Scheme funding?
Fee exemption or sponsorship: If there are fee exemption or sponsorship arrangements in place there
needs to be agreement between the Colleges regarding the responsibility for approving these
arrangements and where applicable, which College will be funding them. Please see the Tuition Fee
Exemption and Sponsorship at: http://www.jcu.edu.au/policy/allitoz/JCUDEV_005355.html
