FEB2021 UOW is delighted to announce a 20% bursary for onshore coursework students commencing in 2021. As UOW transitions back to on-campus study in 2021, we want to ensure international onshore students can pursue their study goals in Australia despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and cost associated with studying away from home.
The Commencing Students 20% Onshore Bursary will be applied to all eligible onshore coursework students following course commencement (for enrolments commencing in 2021) and will extend for the life of the course in which they enrol. The bursary can be used in conjunction with other scholarships and bursaries such as UOW Country Bursary up to a maximum of 50% of the published course fee.
Please note: Students who have recently commenced in Trimester 1 will be eligible for the 20% bursary. UOW is also still accepting new application for all Session 1 2021 intakes.
Students commencing in 2021 on a packaged offer with UOW College Australia (UOWCA) will also be able to access this bursary for the UOW component of their course, even if the UOW component falls outside of 2021.
FEB2021 Offshore Students. As many international students are still unable to travel to Australia due to COVID-19 border restrictions, UOW will continue to deliver a remote (online) study option. Students who choose to commence through remote study will receive the Commencing Students 10% Offshore Bursary for the life of the course in which they enrol.
Students with coursework offers for Session 1 (Autumn Semester and Trimester 1) will have the appropriate bursary applied following course
commencement and will be provided further information via email.
Moving forward, UOW will stipulate any relevant bursary details on students’ Letter of Offer.
A range of complementary bursaries will also be available to current (returning) students. These will be communicated to students directly.
We hope this additional level of financial support is a welcome initiative and of benefit to our students during this challenging time.
