There is no deadline for this bursary, as the EAP Bursary is automatically offered upon meeting the eligibility criteria. However, you must start your EAP program before April 2022.

If you need more information, you can ask us a question.

What happens next?

You must accept your offer to study at QUT by following the instructions outlined in your offer letter (detailed in the 'Accepting Your Offer' section).

When you make the acceptance payment, you will need to pay your EAP tuition fees upfront.

When will I receive the bursary?

You'll receive your bursary payment once you've successfully completed the EAP Program and progressed to the subsequent academic program.
