Externally funded sponsorships

Sponsored students receive financial assistance from a government, organisation or company (not private individuals or relatives) to undertake studies at The University of Western Australia (UWA).  Funding of the scholarship is usually from an organisation within the student's home country.

The University of Western Australia (UWA) International Centre welcomes sponsored students, but it is important to note that student's need to make their own enquiries within their home country or own organisation about how to become an International Centre sponsored student.

These scholarships are not administered by UWA but are listed on our scholarships website for your convenience.  Below is a full list of recognised sponsoring authorities by country.
