Scholarship Overview

Fully Funded Scholarships at the University of Melbourne have different passions and ambitions. Some of us want to see beyond the stars; some of us are working to save what’s precious here on Earth. Some of us are driven to create new worlds in art or to carve a path in sport.

If you have been sent an unconditional offer, you can choose to accept it online immediately.

To accept your offer online:

  • To accept your course offer, complete and submit your acceptance offer form. If you have also received a tuition fee remission scholarship offer and you accept that offer, you will not need to pay a tuition fee deposit. If your scholarship includes Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) the University will arrange a policy on your behalf with our preferred provider, BUPA.
  • If your scholarship does not include OSHC you will need to either pay to have OSHC arranged for you by the University or purchase OSHC with an approved provider for the duration of your student visa. If you require couples or family OSHC and your scholarship provides only single level cover, you will need to pay the additional amount to have OSHC for your family members arranged by the University.
  • If you have not received a scholarship, you will need to provide a tuition fee deposit and Overseas Student Health Cover payment or arrange your own visa length OSHC policy

You'll then receive a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) from the University. You'll need your CoE to apply for a student visa.
