Scholarship to study in Australia

There are two admission windows in an academic year in which you can apply for admission to study in Australia. These dates are tentative and may vary depending on the university.

  • Major Intakes- February and July
  • Minor Intakes- September and November

Certain courses have only one intake in a year so students must apply well in advance. Students planning to study and apply for scholarships in Australia must start the application process 8-12 months prior to the planned intake to ensure proper documentation, editing, precise statements and adequately completing all application steps based on the requirements of the university. Scholarship deadlines may be different for different institutions.
Timely documentation and submission are critical for obtaining the best scholarship available to study in Australia. In order to maximize your benefits from the available scholarships in Australia, call us or walk into the XL Pathfinders office at the earliest.
