About Scholarships

Scholarships from Australian Universities

Australian universities and the Australian Federal Government offer scholarships and bursaries to international students. The majority of these are provided to students who wish to do research in Australia at the postgraduate level (e.g., Master’s by Research, or PhD). A limited number of scholarships are available for students taking undergraduate programs or a general master’s degree.

For professional programs, such as medicine, law, physiotherapy, and teacher education, few scholarships are available to international students, chiefly because these programs are not research-oriented.

Each university has its own policy on how scholarships are awarded. OzTREKK links our students to in-depth information about applying for Australian university scholarships.
