Scholarship Benefits

A HDR study program incurs two primary expenses: tuition fees and living costs during the course of study. Scholarships are available in two categories that correspond to these areas:

Fee Offset Scholarships: These scholarships encompass a portion or the entirety of your educational expenses for a designated period. When the scholarship period concludes, you might receive an invoice for the remaining tuition fees if you were granted only a partial scholarship.

Stipend Scholarships: These funds are allocated to support you throughout your pursuit of full-time or part-time education. Sustenance grants manifest in diverse forms, with varying amounts, and can be sponsored by external entities (such as the government) or internal sources (such as researcher grants or funding from Curtin University’s competitive and strategic budget allocations). These grants may serve as an additional sum for a brief duration or be specifically tailored for short-term educational objectives

Fee Offset Scholarship provision:  

  1. a) Research Doctorate:

Full-time study: 4 years equivalent

Part-time study: 8 years equivalent

(b) Master’s program:

Full-time study: 2 years equivalent

Part-time study: 4 years equivalent
