Australian PhD program


Does anyone know much about the admission process of Australian PhD programs? It seems so different from US programs, but I can’t be happier to know the GRE is not required (cuz my math sucked???).

Are they as hard to get in? Can people without research experience get in? And how is the employment prospect for its graduates? Do students get big enough stipends and tuition remission to support themselves? Do they have to take on TA or RAships?

I’m talking about top schools like Melbourne and Sydney. I really want to get a PhD and don’t want to have to go through the torturing US admission process again.
