International Scholarships

Financial support for living costs and tuition fees enables research students to focus on their research. The University of Tasmania offers a variety of living allowance scholarships and travel scholarships for selected international research students.

Scholarship applications are considered throughout the year, please see our scholarships page for the key dates and Apply Now for details on how to apply.

If unsuccessful, an application for scholarship may result in an offer of candidature only.  International candidates have six months to accept or decline an offer of candidature and/or scholarship, and six months to commence their candidature.

International candidates who accept a candidature only offer must confirm they are able to cover all expenses of PhD study in Tasmania (including living expenses, tuition fees and Overseas Student Health Cover). You may need to provide evidence of financial capacity to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection when you apply for a student visa.
