How to apply

Applications are processed through Queensland Education Research Inventory (QERI) External Link.

If you're a first-time user of QERI, you'll need to start by creating an account. When you log in, you'll be asked some questions about your proposed research, to assess whether you need to submit a research application.

How to submit an application

To submit an application please visit the Queensland Education Research Inventory (QERI) website and follow the instructions.

How long does it take for research to be approved?

Research applications take about 12 weeks to process. This may seem a long time, but we receive many applications, each of which needs to go through several stages before it can be approved. If you'd like to know what stage your application is up to, you'll find its 'status' displayed next to the application in QERI.

How to submit a national application

All jurisdictions across Australia welcome research in schools that is of high quality and consistent with the National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research.

Each state and territory assesses research applications according to broadly similar criteria, balancing likely benefits and feasibility against likely costs and ethical requirements.

If you want to conduct research in more than one state or territory, complete a single National Application Form External Link and apply separately to each jurisdiction.

The websites, email addresses and contact details for each jurisdiction are in the National Application Form Guidelines Adobe PDF document External Link as well as the Working With Children Checks and insurance coverage requirements in each state and territory.
