Australian/New Zealand students are eligible for Australian Postgraduate Awards which cover fees and living expenses. Highly qualified applicants may be eligible for Elite (top-up) Scholarships, worth $32,000 tax free per annum, a free laptop and pre-application trip to check out Hobart and the University of Tasmania.
Funding for overseas students is available on a competitive basis for students with a strong track record (journal publication, MSc in English, etc.).
