Benefits for students & courses

At VU, we understand how important education is in enabling students to achieve their full potential, and how access to a scholarship can help make that happen.

Each year, VU awards hundreds of scholarships to students at all levels – TAFE, undergraduate, and postgraduate – providing financial and practical assistance for students to get a head start.

VU is committed to providing an annual allocation of 35 Access Scholarships for Western Chances recipients studying at VU, with each scholarship valued at $1,000.
