UOW has a number of Australian Government travel grants of between $2,000 and $8,000 per student for semester and short-courses worldwide.
Australian government travel grants
The funding allows you to undertake studies in specific countries and institutions, all chosen for the availability of subjects taught in English.
There are a number of funded places for studies in Asia, through generous funding of the New Colombo Plan (NCP) scheme.
The prestigious NCP Scholarship program offers high-achieving Australian students the opportunity to undertake study, participate in an internship, and receive language training in 40 different host locations in the Indo-Pacific. Successful student applicants can receive up to $67,000 in funding, and will also receive credit towards their Australian course of study for the program.
