That's great. Many congrats. I am still waiting and now the processing time has been reduced from 4 months to 87 days. 4 months plus passed in my case and I don't know when will I get my grant. This waiting time is killing me. Why are they so slow??????? When are u planning to fly to Australia?

Why just why? Why is it so hard for them to process applications from aspiring scientists, who are coming on full scholarship and health cover?

After sitting tight for more than 4 months I found that these are the questions we will never know the answers to.
BTW did you got any further extension for enrollment from your university?

Yes, I did get an extension, the graduate support at Monash has been very helpful so far.

Unhappy

Hello guys, I am someone in the same state as yours. I got PhD offer to study at UNSW. Initially filed my application on 25th Jan but due to an error made by my agent in the application, I had to refile the application. After submitting withdrawal form on 8th March, it was only approved on 5th April (yes almost a month for simple acknowledgement that I can withdraw the application!!). I have now refiled the application on 5th April along with all the documents that they have asked you all in this forum (form 80, 1221, research proposal and all relevant certificates). Seeing by the trends of yours, I seems likely that I wont get the visa before 30th April which the university has allowed me to enroll within.
@p1890 I think you are going to UNSW as well. Which scholarship have you got? Are you planning to ask them for deferral to July?

Sorry to hear about your troubles, the standard processing times for the postgraduate research sector can go upto 4 months and even longer!

I'm doing under Aerospace Engineering. The conditions of the offer say that only admission offer can be deferred and the scholarship is not deferrable. Do you think they will let us hold on to it since it was visa delay on which we had no control?
