As a currently enrolled student, you can be sponsored (i.e. have your course fees paid) by your employer or by a third party organisation that agrees to meet your financial responsibilities.

Sponsorship agreements

The student and the sponsor must submit a completed External sponsorship agreement form.

Sponsorship agreements can be submitted from the time of enrolment, up to the relevant HE census date or VET/TAFE census date. They can be submitted either:

Signing these forms indicates entry into a third party contract between the sponsor, student and Victoria University.

Validity of sponsorship agreement

Each sponsorship agreement is valid for the period stated on each form.

When this period ends, the student and sponsor will need to submit a new agreement.

The sponsor is liable for all specified fees incurred up to the end of the sponsorship agreement or at the point of termination of the agreement, if it is terminated early.

A sponsor invoice that list all fees owing for each sponsored student will be issued to the sponsor once the agreement has been processed.

Payment

Sponsors must provide full payment of the sponsored fees by the specified due date on each invoice.

Where full payment is not received by the due date, an encumbrance will be placed on each outstanding student’s record. This encumbrance will prevent the student from:

  • receiving their assessment results
  • enrolling into additional units
  • graduating.
