The Northcote Postgraduate Scholarship is to enable students normally resident in the UK to undertake a higher degree at an Australian university for up to three years. The Britain-Australia Society administers the Northcote Postgraduate Scholarships on behalf of the Northcote Trust.
There is no limitation on the field of study. Applicants must be resident in the UK (or one of its dependencies or territories) and need to ascertain their own eligibility for a postgraduate programme (MA or PhD) in Australia.
The Trustees particularly welcome proposals for PhD and research-based Masters programmes.
For more information, please visit the British-Australia Society website.
Some countries offer financial aid programs to students studying abroad. Most financial aid is in the form of a loan that must be repaid upon completion of the study period.
The following countries have financial aid programs where JCU is registered to administer on your behalf. For more information please click on the links below.
If your country is not listed here, we encourage you to explore financial aid options directly within your home country. If you have secured funding from your home country and require assistance with paperwork, please contact the JCU Financial Aid office.
Students who have a scholarship or company paying the university fees on their behalf will need to seek approval of the sponsorship prior to commencement of studies. JCU is unable to issue an invoice to a third party unless we have an approved student sponsor agreement.
Official sponsorships can only be established between the University and an organisation (e.g. foreign university, government or business). Personal or family related sponsorships cannot be officiated.
