Accommodation Scholarships and Bursaries

UOW is offering a number of scholarships and bursaries for students moving into one of our residences in 2019. Having help with your costs of accommodation means one less thing to worry about.

Early Admission Accommodation Bursaries

If you plan to move from a regional area or interstate to start your first year of study at UOW in 2019, you could be awarded an Early Admission Accommodation Bursary to make the move from Year 12 to uni easy. The Bursary will give you $5,000 towards the cost of your accommodation in a UOW student residence in 2019. Find out about the Early Admission Accommodation Bursary.

International Student Accommodation Scholarships

Moving to Australia for study is an exciting step to take, but we understand that it can be a bit daunting too! To make your move to UOW easier, we're offering a limited number of accommodation scholarships to international students worth AU$5,000, to go towards the cost of staying in a UOW student residence in 2019. Find out more about International Student Accommodation Scholarships.

My Living and Learning Partners scholarship has made such a profound impact on my first year. I have extra time for studying and making the most of my degree, and I've been able to take full advantage of opportunities like the Australian Youth Climate Coalition. This scholarship has meant that I can immerse myself completely into university, in terms of both study and lifestyle.

Living on campus has been great because I can live on my own and have my independence, but it's close enough to my family that I can still visit. It was so helpful finding out that I had a guaranteed place in a campus residence, too; no stress about having to sort out somewhere to live!
