You can study astronomy and astrophysics with ICRAR at either Curtin University or the University of Western Australia. More details available on our 'Study with ICRAR' factsheet (pdf, 1.1MB).
Studentships such as ICRAR's are an excellent opportunity for undergraduate students to experience cutting edge research in Australia. If you are interested in a Summer Studentship with ICRAR, we welcome your application for our next round, which will open in August 2014.
In 2013 selected undergraduate students (3rd and 4th year and honours students) from Australia and New Zealand received up to $6,000 over the 10 week internship. Applicants not from Western Australia also received one return airfare to Perth from their home city. Accommodation can be organised by ICRAR and will be subsidised by up to 50%.
Details of the available projects (including detailed project proposals) are available at the studentships page when applications open. Four of the eight internships available are offered jointly with iVEC for projects with a computational focus.
The successful applicants are expected to begin in late November or early December each year. See studentships for more details.

Lectures are split evenly between the two semesters March-June and August-October. Lectures are normally doubled-up and held from 2-4pm on Mondays at the Curtin and UWA nodes of ICRAR. More details available on the UWA web page for the course.
