The scholarship would be available to those students who are enrolled at a registered tertiary provider’s regional campus and studying anyone out of Certificate IV, Accredited Diploma, Advanced Diploma, Associate Degree, Bachelor Degree, Bachelors Honours Degree, Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma, Masters or Doctoral degrees.
The Temporary Graduate Visa international students usually get after their study completion in Australia could be extended for another one year if a student completed their studies at a regional campus.
