Students who have been affected by the travel restrictions have been offered a package of financial support. This is:
- a 30 percent tuition fees scholarship for Trimester 1 2020
- a 30 percent tuition fees scholarship for another trimester, up to and including Trimester 1 2021
An affected student will receive a 30 percent tuition fees scholarship for each course they are enrolled in for Trimester 1 2020. This applies whether they are studying by distance in their home country, or are studying on campus having arrived late due to the travel ban.
The fees scholarship will be applied directly to a student’s tuition account during the first week of April, 2020. If they have already paid their fees, they will receive a credit towards their next trimester of study.
In addition, once an affected student arrives at the University, they will also receive a further 30 percent tuition fees scholarship for an additional trimester. They will be able to choose the trimester in which the discount will apply up until the beginning of Trimester 1, 2021. That means their fees scholarship could apply for study in Trimester 2 in 2020, Trimester 3 in 2020, or Trimester 1 in 2021.
These fees scholarships are an acknowledgement that the study experience for this trimester has been impacted due to conditions outside of our control.
Student levy and insurance payments
As well as this package of financial support, affected students will not need to pay their Student Services Levy or insurance payments until they arrive on campus.
