Financial assistance from the government

As an international student, you can remarkably reduce your tuition fee costs by applying to ample scholarships, grants and bursaries, given that the Australian government spends over $200,000,000 annually on international scholarships. This ensures that even the students with humble backgrounds are able to experience a world-class education without having to worry about funds arrangement.
