We recognise that travelling away from your usual residence can incur additional costs. You are expected to cover your own travel, accommodation, insurance (both health and professional indemnity) and living costs associated with completion of your placement in the Northern Territory.
There are a number of grants and scholarships available to support your placement in the NT.
Grants and Scholarships
The following information is intended as a guide and may help assist with some of the additional costs.
See the links below to check eligibility criteria and locate application forms. This list is just a start and you are advised to also check with your home University about potential grants.
In some cases University faculty funding or government grants may be available to assist with travel to and from rural and remote placement sites. Please contact your University placement coordinator for more information.
If completing a placement at Nhulunbuy, Katherine or Tennant Creek, students are expected to pay for travel to the nearest major centre (Darwin or Alice Springs) and Flinders NT can help with the cost of travel to/from the remote site at the beginning and end of placement. Applications are assessed on a case-by-case basis so contact our placement office for more information as soon as your placement is confirmed.
At times there may be an opportunity to travel to remote locations as part of your placement. Flinders NT may be able to assist with travel and accommodation costs associated with these visits if they fall within the normal expected role of your supervisor. We encourage you to attend in order to maximise your learning opportunities. Applications for support for remote visits are assessed on a case-by-case basis. Contact our placement officers for more information.
Bicycles are available for hire at some of our placement sites. Contact our placement officers for more information.
