UTAS $1000 Relocation Bursary

UTAS $1000 Relocation Bursary


Studying can be a real drain on your pocket. It’s not just the fees themselves; pretty quickly you start discovering all the other little costs, from rent to student services and amenities fees.

Don’t despair, though. The University of Tasmania (UTAS) has announced it’s offering yet another fantastic grant to help students save some cash: a relocation bursary.

The Relocation Bursary for International Students offers students $1,000 to help with their costs of moving to Tasmania from anywhere in the world (even Tassie) to start study in Semester 1, 2017.

Flights with baggage from Melbourne to Hobart typically only cost around $80, while a flight from China might only cost around $800 so no matter where you come from you’ll still have money left over to spend on other costs.

Even better, all eligible students are automatically considered. So no need to make a separate application!

Who’s Eligible?

  • Any international student commencing studies in Semester 1, 2017 who is enrolling in the first semester of their first year of a full-load degree.
  • Must accept your offer after the 7th of November, 2016.
  • Stay enrolled past the semester 1, 2017 census date.

Who’s Not Eligible?

  • Students enrolling in a Master of Professional Accounting, Master of Professional Accounting (Specialisation) or Bachelor of Medicine & Bachelor of Surgery.
  • Students accepting another of UTAS’s generous scholarships (such as the Tasmanian International Scholarship or other relocation bursaries).
  • Current UTAS International students (even if you are commencing a new degree in Semester 1, 2017).
