The Australian Government offers financial assistance to tertiary students through a number of schemes, grants and scholarships including:
- Youth Allowance
- Start Up Scholarships
- Relocation Scholarships
- Education Entry payments
Students in receipt of Centrelink payments must be enrolled in at least 75% of a full-time load. At Flinders University, this means that you must be enrolled in at least 13.5 units each semester. If you are enrolled in 2 separate courses which are not recognised as official combined degrees at Flinders University, then you must be enrolled in at least 13.5 units in one of your courses each semester to remain eligible for Centrelink support.
For further information contact Centrelink.
Flinders University Student Association (FUSA)
If you require further assistance and advice, Student Assist - which is a part of FUSA - provides a free and confidential financial counselling service which can negotiate and advocate on your behalf with creditors as well as provide you with information on Student Grants, Student Loans and Emergency Assistance that may be available to you.
