Nearly all of the universities in Australia, New Zealand and the U.K. offer a small number of scholarships. Scholarships are merit based, meaning a reward for work well-done, and thus usually given after a student arrives at university. We encourage you to apply, but remember they are very competitive. Students should not plan to consider a scholarship as a major source of funding.
We recommend students go to the scholarship, faculty and international pages of the university website for further information on scholarship opportunities.
We also encourage students to consider other information sources to locate scholarships such as your library, bookstore, internet, local service organizations such as Rotary or Knights of Columbus, and professional organizations in your area and home country which may offer scholarships.
Scholarships offered by the universities should be applied for at the time of application and included in the application materials you send to us.
