Sponsored students receive financial assistance (or a scholarship) from a government, organisation or company to undertake studies in Australia.  This funding is usually administered by the sponsoring body within the student’s home country (and not by Curtin University).

Curtin University welcomes sponsored students, but it is important to note that prospective students need to make their own enquiries about scholarship opportunities available within their home country or about potential sponsorship opportunities (such as support from your employer) to study in Australia. For information on some scholarships available in your home country see Scholarships Funded By Home Country.

The International Sponsored Student Unit (ISSU) provides support to sponsored students and their sponsor organisations.  The ISSU has three dedicated staff members who aim to ensure that students and sponsors are provided with quality support during their studies at Curtin.
