IRAMS is platform-agnostic and will work across all major PC and Mac browsers. Please ensure you are using the latest version of your chosen browser, where possible.
Spurious characters in lay summary field
When pasting text from other documents into lay summary field, spurious characters can appear in the pdf version of the form. This pdf version is created for the review process (eg departmental approver, selection committee).
To prevent this from happening, first paste text into a text editor, before copying into the lay summary. Recommended text editors are Notepad (available in Windows) and TextEdit (available on a Mac).
Saving your application
IRAMS will auto-save your application as you move between sections of the form. However, ensure you click save before using the “Back to Main Menu” option - not doing so will result in you losing any unsaved data. Closing the browser window without first saving will also result in lost data.
Visiting researchers and external applicants
If IRAMS does not recognise your SSO when completing the application form, please contact IRAMS support to request that your details are manually added to the system.
