Scholarship opportunities in Australia

Criteria to apply to scholarships to study in Australia  

Most scholarships require a decent academic score, but it also depends on aspects such as your preferred destination, subject, and level. Extracurricular hobbies and volunteer work might be used to your advantage in some scholarships.

You may be required to report results from an English language competency test, such as the IELTS, which is widely accepted by all Australian educational institutions.

What do scholarships usually cover?

The majority of scholarships for studying in Australia support tuition, however some may also cover living or travel expenses. Students can get up to a 100 percent scholarship from research programmes, which covers both tuition and living expenses. Please keep in mind that the amount of money available and the type of award vary depending on your university. Scholarships are competitive, so you should apply well ahead of time. We propose beginning the procedure 8-12 months prior to the targeted intake date.

The majority of Australian institutions and colleges also feature a list of scholarships available for Indian students. Don’t worry if you get stuck somewhere; our international education experts will be pleased to assist you.
