Receive financial support

Financial assistance can help you get the most out of your university experience.

Domestic students don't have to pay course fees upfront. HECS-HELP and FEE-HELP allows you to access a government loan that you pay off through your income tax.

Some courses also provide Commonwealth Supported Places, meaning the government subsidises the course fees. So, it is worth shopping around.

UC also offers a variety of scholarships to assist you with living costs, textbooks, accommodation, relocation or contribution towards your fees. Simply submit one application, and you’ll be considered for every scholarship for which you’re eligible.

After high school, I was in full-time work for four years and I took time for some soul-searching and to decide what I wanted to study. One day I decided I had to stop comparing my path to everyone else’s and just know that this was where I was supposed to be.
