Apply now if you are commencing in semester 1, 2019.

This scholarship is currently open for applicants commencing in semester 1 2019. It will reopen for the semester 2 intake in April.

The scholarship benefit is equivalent to 50% of tuition costs (indicative value of $27,000), in the form of a tuition fee waiver. This will cover the cost of 8 subjects within the MBA Global program, and will be applied to the final 8 courses of study.

The scholarship will be applied directly to the recipient’s university customer account around census date in the relevant semesters of study.

IELTS scores may also be taken into account.
