Scholarships, prizes and awards

Scholarships

A tertiary education not only opens doors to professional careers, it improves students’ chances for a rewarding future. Having a degree improves employment prospects, and the higher your level of qualification, the greater your chances of securing employment. University study is about learning and questioning, and acquiring skills and knowledge to become an informed and productive member of the community.

At the University, we understand that meeting the financial obligations of a university education can be a challenge. To help overcome this, the University provides a broad range of scholarships to high achieving students as well as those who are most in need of financial assistance. There are also numerous prizes and awards rewarding academic excellence within the School of Information Technology & Mathematical Sciences. 

The School provides significant support for postgraduate research students. This includes office space, computing resources, conference travel, and accommodation, as well as top-up scholarships.
