Universities Australia does not provide advice on a particular university, study course or funding to students wishing to apply for a university place, scholarships, visas, or graduate employment.

Australian citizens and permanent residents can access information on government assistance, fees, and student income support (including Youth Allowance and scholarships) visit the Study Assist website. To compare university courses, visit Course Seeker. Applications for most undergraduate study and some postgraduate coursework programs must be submitted through the university admissions centre in the state where the university is based. Applications for other postgraduate programs and non-award courses are typically handled by individual universities.

International students can visit the Australian Government's official Study in Australia website for information on available programs, student visas and living costs. Prospective students should seek advice from individual universities regarding the enrolment process.

Individual universities also make a range of scholarships available to both domestic and international students.
