Possibilities of funding for French students in Australia [fr]

The cost of higher education is a significant factor to consider when applying to study in Australia. For information and estimations on the costs of living and studying in Australia, please consult the advice from the Australian Government, or directly consult the information from the destination institution. International students can’t get a government loan to cover their tuition fees and are liable to pay full tuition fees for courses.
For this reason, many international students seek information about how to obtain scholarships to support their study in Australia.

Australian Government Funding

There are a very limited number of opportunities available to international students studying in Australia to receive funding from the Commonwealth:
