VU is offering a new scholarship to assist commencing international students who wish to begin their undergraduate or postgraduate (coursework) studies in 2020. The VU COVID-19 International Scholarship is valued at up to A$6,000; it acknowledges the impact COVID-19 is having on students and their families.

Students may be eligible for other VU scholarships after their first two semesters of study.

How to apply

Upon successful completion of two semesters, students will be assessed for the VU International Excellence Scholarship, which is valued at A$1,500 per semester for the remainder of their studies.
The total value of the combined scholarship is up to A$15,000 for a four-year undergraduate degree.
