What's this?

You are invited to attend our Study in Australia Exhibition! Speak to our professional education consultants and Australian university representatives. See you there!

Overview

Before we dive into our list, there are a few things you have to keep in mind:

  • Most universities overseas would provide scholarships available to international students only, there are even more specific scholarships cater to international students from certain regions (e.g. Asia, Southeast Asia, specific countries, and so on).
  • Different scholarship types are paid differently, for example: course fee reduction, bursaries, discounts on accommodation, etc. 
  • Each scholarship has its own entry requirements to be an eligible candidate, which always include achieving the minimum English requirement. 
  • The minimum requirement of the test scores on this list is stated in GPA or ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) form, which is why you are required to convert your results to calculate if you’ve achieved the requirement.
  • Though some universities may request a higher score for other exams as the minimum requirement. As a result, you may get in touch with us for consultancy.

*Please note that each scholarship has their own specific conditions and application processes which may not be included in this list. You may click on the link to go to their website or enquire us for more detailed information.
