Financial Aid

Some countries offer financial aid programs to students studying abroad. We encourage you to explore options with your home government. Most financial aid is in the form of a loan that must be repaid upon completion of the study period.

The following regions offer financial aid programs where JCU is registered to administer on your behalf.  

If you have funding from your home country and require assistance with paperwork, please contact the JCU Financial Aid Team.

Sponsored Students

Students who have a financial sponsor paying university fees on their behalf will need to seek approval prior to commencement of studies if the sponsorship is to be officially recognised by JCU.  

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.

If you are a new international student and wish to give authorisation for someone else to make inquiries on your behalf, please complete and return the third party authorisation form (PDF 142KB).
