If your year 12 studies have been interrupted the UC Uplift Package is designed to support you, with options to study at the University of Canberra.
Adjustment factors are additional points that are added to your Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) to give you a selection rank, which is used to assess your eligibility for courses.
Receiving financial assistance can help you get the most out of your university experience. Our scholarships can assist you with living costs, textbooks, accommodation, relocation or contribution towards your fees.
You’ll need to have applied and accepted your offer to study at UC in order to apply for a scholarship. Once you do, applying is easy. Simply submit one application, and you’ll be considered for every scholarship for which you’re eligible.
