If you are experiencing financial or personal hardship there are financial support options available to help you meet your goals.


Scholarships are payments to help support your study. They’re not loans so don’t need to be repaid. Most scholarships are not intended to cover the whole cost of tuition fees, but can help to cover university costs such as books, living expenses and transport.

Murdoch offers scholarships for:

  • students facing financial hardship
  • students with records of high achievement
  • students from regional areas
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students
  • international students
  • students studying specific courses.

You can also explore your options with scholarships offered by external providers, including government and private organisations.
