Vocational Education and Training
Private education providers (meaning all colleges except for TAFE), oftentimes offer a discount to students packaging more than one course. Some colleges offer an incentive to students in the form of $1,000 off their enrolment or waive the application, resources and/or material fees as part of a set promotion.
Some scholarships may be offered on the basis of a student’s country of passport, location at time of application (onshore/offshore), or their type of study plan.
Fully funded scholarships are very rare. Students seeking a fully funded course can look at applying for a scholarship or loan in their home country. You can also find useful information on the major scholarships offered to international students on the Study In Australia website.
