Financial aid

There are a number of options available to help international students with student fees, including scholarships and government loan schemes. We encourage you to explore all the options available to you to find the best fit or contact our team to discuss the options available to you. 

Bond scholarships

We offer several part-fee scholarships and bursaries specifically for international students at both the undergraduate and postgraduate level recognising academic merit and leadership. 

International scholarship applicants include any student completing Year 12 studies or equivalent at an international high school, or undergraduate or postgraduate applicants who are not Australian citizens or holders of a Permanent Resident or Humanitarian Visa. International students who are currently studying Year 12 at an Australian high school are considered to be Australian applicants for scholarship purposes.

When it comes to financial assistance for university studies, every country differs on what it can offer to their citizens.

Funding options can include government loans, scholarships, and bursaries. Your home country's government website is the most accurate and up-to-date source to find information on financial assistance.
