Financial assistance and scholarships
If you are an Australian Citizen or Permanent Humanitarian Visa holder, you may be eligible for financial assistance from the Australian Government.
There are many bursaries and scholarships awarded by the University and specific faculties, based on a variety of criteria. Online students are encouraged to apply.
FEE-HELP is a loan available to eligible students in domestic fee-paying places to help pay for all or part of their tuition fees. The Commonwealth Government sets limits on how much you can borrow. FEE-HELP loans are repaid through the taxation system. No loan fee applies to loans for postgraduate studies. Detailed information about eligibility for FEE-HELP is available from the Study Assist website.
- Domestic scholarships
The Melbourne Scholarships Program is one of the most generous and comprehensive in Australia – supporting approximately 3000 students at the University.

The Dorothy Jean Ineke Scholarship in Nursing was created by nurse Julie Sheldrake. There are two scholarships awarded for excellence in courses in post registration nursing that lead to speciality nursing practice. The scholarships will be available to students who commence in the graduate certificate course and do not receive any funding for their study via the Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP) program.
