International Student Scholarships
More scholarships than ever before.
When you apply to Western, you’re automatically assessed for a Scholarship, no additional application required! We’re offering multi-year scholarships (for up to 3 years) valued at $6,000 or $3,000 and even 50% off tuition fees. Scholarships are awarded on academic merit.
After you Apply
If your application is successful, you’ll be emailed an Offer of Admission from Western or UAC. This will tell you which course you’ve been accepted into, the fees, and your start date. If you do not meet our entry requirements, your application will be automatically assessed for a suitable pathway program offered by The College.
If you satisfy all the entry criteria, you will receive an unconditional offer. If you do not satisfy all the entry criteria, you will receive either a Packaged Pathway Offer or a Conditional Offer indicating the entry criteria that you need to satisfy. Check out the terms and conditions here.
You must obtain a student visa before you come to study in Australia. Once the acceptance forms and payment have been received, we will issue you an Electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCoE). You must then use the eCoE to apply for your student visa.
