Payment Method

Each scholarship works as a partial fee-reduction; payments are deducted from each semester’s tuition fee, for the duration of the scholarship.  This is set out in the tables below.

The amounts in these tables are maximum amounts, based on course duration. A student will only be eligible to receive instalments that match their course’s duration. This may be less than the maximum. Further, a student who commences a course part-way through, due to advanced standing, will only be eligible to receive instalments corresponding with the remainder of the course.
