Commonwealth Supported Places

Commonwealth supported places

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

A Commonwealth Supported place (CSP) is a University place where, for eligible domestic students, tuition fees are made up of two parts:

  • an Australian Government contribution (for some courses, up to three-quarters of the tuition fee is funded by the Australian Government)
  • a student contribution (which may be deferred and repaid later via a HECS-HELP loan)

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. 

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