Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP) are offered for our postgraduate programs. A CSP means that the Australian Government subsidises your course fees and you pay the remaining amount – a student contribution.
You must be a domestic student to be eligible, i.e. an Australian or New Zealand citizen, a permanent resident of Australia or an Australian permanent humanitarian visa holder.
While allocation of CSPs to applicants is competitive as they are limited in number, you don't need to make a separate application - you will automatically be considered based on merit.
