Commonwealth Supported Places

Commonwealth supported places

Studying a postgraduate degree in a Commonwealth supported place (CSP) could see your total course fees subsidised by up to 75% by the Australian Government.

If you apply for any CSP eligible course at UOW, your eligibility is automatically considered when we assess your application. 

While there are eligibility criteria to meet, if you are an Australian citizen, or a New Zealand Special Category Visa holder who meets the long-term residency requirements, or a holder of a permanent humanitarian visa - you're more than halfway to meeting these criteria.  

Eligible students may also be able to access HECS-HELP to defer all or part of their course fees. Find out more about Domestic Postgraduate  

UOW has been working to make our postgraduate courses more accessible and we are now able to offer discounted fees across a wide range of graduate certificates. Most of these courses are offered 100% online and can be completed over 6-12 months. The tuition fees for subjects in the graduate certificates will be subsidised by the Commonwealth government by up to 75%. This means you’ll only need to pay the balance of the subject fees, rather than the full fee.

Your study options

On successful completion of a UOW Graduate Certificate, you can choose to graduate with the qualification or continue into a related Masters and receive credit for the four subjects you have completed. Applying the four fee-subsidised subjects to a Masters will significantly reduce the usual tuition fee for this qualification.

There’s never been a better time to get a start on your postgraduate qualifications.
