Funding Your Studies

Although expensive, there are many excellent reasons to study abroad, which make your investment good value for money.

  • Receive a high quality education leading to internationally recognised qualifications that will boost your career prospects at home or abroad;
  • Broaden your horizons by experiencing a new country and meeting international students from a wide range of cultural backgrounds;
  • Improve your English while you study;
  • Develop personal skills, such as independence, flexibility and adaptability, all highly valued by employers!

This section provides guidance to help you explore the options for funding your studies.

Self-Funded Students

Most self-funded students raise funds either from their own savings, or with the help of parents or other family members. A bank loan is also an option, and in some countries you will be able to get an education loan under preferential terms.

Depending on the study destination and course you choose, your visa may allow you to work during your studies to supplement your income. In some countries, you may also be allowed to take paid employment at the end of your studies, which will help to pay back your student loan.

Government Sponsorship

In some countries, the Government provides generous scholarships that enable students to study abroad. Often these scholarships have strict conditions. To qualify for a scholarship, you will need good academic qualifications and you may be restricted to certain subjects at specified overseas universities.

To find out if study abroad scholarships are available, please contact the Ministry of Education (or equivalent) in your country.


A number of scholarships exist for international students who want to study abroad. We recommend the Google search links below for students who need to research scholarship opportunities.

IMPORTANT: We cannot provide our services to students who are unable to finance their studies privately or through a recognised government scholarship. Before considering your application, your advisor may request evidence to prove you have the means to fund your studies.
