Does anyone have any information about applying for University as a temporary resident.  The cost is 3 times what a permanent resident would pay. Any tips how to get round this.

Why would you imagine there's any way to get around it?   It is what it is.

the cheaper fees arent for visitors which is what a person with a temporary visa is.

As far as I am aware, reduced fees are only for Australian citizens (and possibly PR but I'm not sure if that's still available now).  Visitors pay visitor rates.

There is no way around it as a temporary resident. Why would there be?

We had heard you can apply for Scholarships and receive grants and funds towards it.  We thought someone may be able to offer advice from their own experiences but from the replies I have received so far I guess not.  Thanks to everyone anyway

when i were applying for scholarships they had all eligibility conditions. i had to prove citizenship in my application. i didnt see anything that would be for temporary residents. the only person I knew on temporary visa with scholarship got it from the overseas uni they enrolled in. it was to study overseas but then he had to go back to his own country to work for x years or repay the money.

There are scholarships available for international students but I think they tend to be for postgraduate students.  Contact the university you are interested in directly and see if they offer any scholarships for international students.  


Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain but it takes character and self control to be understanding and forgiving.
