Research Training Scheme (RTS)

All funding for research places prior to October 2001 were included in the Operating Grant Load for the University. In October 2001 a new scheme known as the RTS (Research Training Scheme) was established. This scheme is designed to categorise all Higher Degree Research separately from Operating Grant Load. Central Queensland University was one of the few universities that chose to retain gap places and as a result have a combination of HECS exempt and RTS students categorised as RTS.
