VISA Entitlement and Requirements
Scholarship recipients are required to meet the cost of compulsory Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC), tuition fees, living costs and cost of return airfares. These costs will not be covered by the Scholarship.
The Scholarship must be taken up in the semester and year for which it is offered. The University may withdraw the Scholarship if a candidate fails to provide any required documentation or provide false or misleading documentation.

It is not possible to defer the award and the Scholarship cannot be transferred to any other institution.
Students who subsequently withdraw from their program of study at the University before the census date for Semester 1 (31 Mar 2017) must repay the Scholarship to the University in its entirety. Any outstanding repayments will be deducted from the tuition fee refund.
An application for admission to the University in 2017 will constitute an application for a Scholarship provided that a completed Scholarship application form is also forwarded electronically to the Faculty.
Successful recipients will receive the Scholarship offer from the Faculty of the Professions. All applications will be assessed on a merit-based selection process.

If no response is received by the specified deadline, the offer of the Scholarship will lapse and will be offered to the next eligible candidate.
