The university is focused on global research and contemporary education through its six colleges of Business, Government and Law, Education, Psychology and Social Work, Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences, Medicine and Public Health, Nursing and Health Science and Science and Engineering.

A limited number of AGRTPS are available each year and the scholarship round is highly competitive. The AGRTPS is awarded to candidates who demonstrate an outstanding aptitude for independent research. Scholarships are considered on the basis of academic merit, academic research training, and research indicators and performance.

The AGRTPS pays the international student tuition fees and includes a living stipend paid at the rate of $28,092 as well as overseas health care cover. Students from overseas are eligible for an establishment of up to $1,485 to assist with relocation costs and airfares, provided receipts can be produced by the student.
