Financial assistance is offered to students from households with a combined taxable income below AUD$250,000.
The amount of financial assistance offered is based on the individual financial needs of every student. Each application is reviewed on a case-by-case basis to ensure we are best meeting each student’s individual needs.
You must have submitted an application for residency before submitting an application for financial assistance. Applications for financial assistance for Semester 1, 2020 will be open and available to download here on 1st September.
