International students looking for funding, scholarships or other financial assistance towards covering fees and living costs should start thinking about how to fund their studies as early as possible. Many funding agencies and scholarships have strict deadlines.

Please note that it is a condition of most funding agencies that students should hold at least a provisional offer of a place to study at a university before applying for a scholarship. Adequate funding for the full cost of the first year of studies must be in place in order for international students to successfully complete the visa application process.
