About the scholarship

The Scholarship is awarded annually to one international student on the basis of academic merit and personal qualities. The top international students with the highest Grade Point Average for the year who graduate from the Diploma of Business in any semester (one, two or three) are invited to apply for the Scholarship.

The Scholarship covers the balance of tuition fees for two years’ study1 in the UTS Bachelor of Business program and two years’ worth of Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) insurance fees and UTS Student Services and Amenities Fees (SSAF).  The total value can be more than A$70,000.

1 The Scholarship covers 100% of tuition fees for 96 credit points of study in the UTS Bachelor of Business program if it is the only tuition fees scholarship held by the Recipient.  For a Recipient who holds other tuition fee scholarships, only the balance of tuition fees for 96 credit points of study in the UTS Bachelor of Business will be awarded.  A student holding a UTS Insearch Diploma of Business will generally complete a UTS Bachelor of Business Program in two years on a full-time study load (24 credit points per session).
