Scholarships in Australia for International Students

Undergraduate Scholarships For International Students

Undergraduate Excellence Scholarships (UES)

The UES offers a 15% reduction of the international tuition fee for the duration of the course, up to a maximum of 4 years. Terms and conditions of each scholarship offered will be included with the Offer of Admission. 

There is no limit to the number of UES available – as long as you meet the academic criteria, you will automatically be awarded the scholarship along with your offer of admission:  

You may be eligible if you have excellent results in one of the following categories:

  • Australian Year 12 or equivalent international secondary school qualification;
  • Foundation Studies programs approved for direct admission to Bachelor degrees and offered at an institution recognised by UOW;
  • Diploma or other academic pathway program approved for admission with credit exemption from an institution with which UOW has a formal agreement;
  • Up to one year of study in a Bachelor degree at a recognised University, where there is no credit exemption awarded to study at UOW. 

The UES is available to students enrolling in Bachelor degrees at UOW (Australian campuses only) except for the following: Doctor of Medicine; Nursing; 4 year Nutrition & Dietetics; 4 year Exercise Science & Rehabilitation; and Education, Social Work; and Psychology (all degrees).


This scholarship provides a further 15% reduction of the international tuition fees in all Faculties, with exclusions the same as for the Undergraduate Excellence Scholarship. 

Next step: you will be automatically considered for both scholarships when you lodge your application for admission.
