UWA has a vision to develop and nurture strong and deep partnerships internationally, and is keen to embrace an increased diversity within the student body in order to benefit from a wide range of viewpoints, cultures, expertise and knowledge. International Sponsored Students are an integral and valued part of the UWA community, and include international students who are funded either by the Australian government or international agencies or governments.

Sponsor Organisations:

Many sponsor organisations around the world enter into third party arrangements with UWA whereby they pay the tuition fees on behalf of the student directly to the University. No formal agreement between UWA and sponsor organisations is required unless there are specific conditions to be recorded.

List of sponsors by country:

We welcome partnerships with new sponsor organisations to contribute to the rich cultural environment at UWA. If you wish to check if a specific sponsor organisation already has a relationship with UWA, we encourage you to contact global.engagement@uwa.edu.au.

Student information

Information for International Students who are seeking a sponsorship:

Sponsor organisations often require students to have received an offer of a program from UWA prior to finalisation of their scholarship. UWA recommends that you check all the the conditions associated with your particular scholarship with the relevant sponsor organisation from your country. If you identify a sponsor organisation which is not listed above, please advise UWA of the details, and we will assist you with the arrangements.
