2017 - UniReady Enabling Program Regional Bursary

The UniReady Enabling Program Regional Bursary has been developed by the UniReady Enabling Program to encourage and support students who have chosen to study 6 months UniReady Enabling Program or eligible enabling course at Curtin University either on campus or online.

Moving to Perth for tertiary study may seem daunting, but it can be a fun and rewarding experience for students who prefer to learn in a collaborative and interactive classroom environment. There are no course fees for UniReady, however, the cost of travel and accommodation are your responsibility if you choose to study on campus. Fortunately, the UniReady Bursary for regional Western Australian students can help you pay for these expenses. If you prefer to stay at home and study UniReady online, the UniReady Bursary can also provide financial support to help you meet the expenses associated with studying online.
