Application Process and Eligibility


The application round for the 2017 Department of Education and Training Graduate Program has now closed.

Details of the 2017 selection process for each discipline are provided on the resources tab on the Graduate Program homepage. Applications for each discipline included an online application (including 2/3 behavioural or discipline specific questions); after applications closed eligible candidates were invited to complete cognitive testing; and the Economics and Data Analytics disciplines were asked to complete an additional video response to a few technical questions; shortlisted candidates are then invited to participate in a Skype interview and complete online written test/s.

We are keen to get to know you throughout the selection process and encourage you to engage with us on Facebook, via email and by phone.
