International scholarships

Victoria University (VU) is proud to support thousands of international scholarship recipients and sponsored students every year.

Our unique VU Block Model® International Scholarship offers up to 30% off tuition fees to new international students starting eligible courses at VU Melbourne in 2024.

We also welcome recipients of externally-funded scholarships, including the prestigious Australia Awards Scholarships.

If you already hold a scholarship or sponsorship, remember to note it when you submit your online international application. All scholarship applicants must meet VU's academic entry requirements, in addition to any specific scholarship eligibility requirements.

Australia Awards Scholarships

Australia Awards scholarships are long-term development awards, offered by the Australian Government and administered by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).

They aim to contribute to the long-term development needs of Australia's partner countries.
