Victoria University Melbourne Scholarship for International Student 2021

Victoria University Melbourne Scholarship for International Student 2021

Victoria University (VU) is proud to support hundreds of international scholarship recipients and sponsored students.

We have a range of externally-funded and university-funded scholarships to support students. Our courses for international students include vocational education and training (VET) through to undergraduate and postgraduate coursework and higher degrees by research.

A scholarship provides financial assistance during your study. Some scholarships provide a stipend that covers tuition fees and living allowances, while others provide only partial funding.

If you already hold a scholarship, or if you are sponsored, remember to note it when you submit your international online application.

All scholarship applicants must meet VU's academic entry requirements, in addition to any eligibility requirements for their scholarship.
