Universities in Australia and New Zealand launch UK Scholarships
Study Options, the leading representative of Australasian institutions in the UK announces seven leading Australian and New Zealand universities are offering a series of one – off, unique scholarships to UK students for undergraduate programmes beginning in February 2006.
Chris Madden, pro-Vice Chancellor of Griffith University in Queensland states Tuition fees are the biggest change British universities have had in years.
Before they were importers, but now with the tuition fees and given the exchange rates, the cost of studying here is not much more than staying at home.
Taken together, the scholarships represent a considerable amount of money – around £100,000.
The universities are hoping to attract high – achieving UK students and each scholarship will be awarded on the basis of academic merit (with the exception of James Cook University – please see the details below).
The scheme will be run through the universities UK representative, Study Options.
