Fees and funding

Funding: key information

  • Please note that Australian domestic students should apply through Monash and UK/ Home and EU students should apply to Warwick. If you are an international student outside of these countries you should apply to the University at which you wish to start your course.
  • Applicants who are selected for the joint PhD may qualify for local scholarships. These students, may be allocated a mobility grant to support their travel between the institutions. UK students awarded a place with a Warwick scholarship may also be provided with top-up funds to match the level of the government scholarships awarded to Australian candidates.
  • From year to year there may be a limited number of full Alliance scholarships available for highly ranked candidates in each round whose projects align with the objectives of the Monash-Warwick Alliance. These scholarships will provide a stipend and help fund travel between the institutions.
  • A limited number of students who are offered places in the joint PhD and who have secured a scholarship, may be allocated a mobility grant to support their travel between the institutions. UK students awarded one of these places with a Warwick scholarship may also be provided with a top-up to match the level of the government scholarships awarded to Australian candidates.
  • Other students may be awarded places on the program but will be expected to supplement any other scholarship support (or self-funded support) with additional funds won through competition for standard travel grants (Monash students).

Monash

If you apply to Monash you should apply for both a place in the joint PhD and a scholarship if you do not already have funding for your research degree.

Warwick

If you apply to Warwick you will be considered for Warwick's Chancellor's or Chancellor's International Scholarships.

Fees

Students who are considered international in both the UK and Australia, and who do not have a scholarship that pays their tuition fees, will be liable for an international student fee for this program.

  • UK/Home and EU students will pay standard Warwick fees (3,900 GBP).
  • Australian domestic students will not be charged tuition fees.

If you are not classified as a UK/Home and EU or an Australian domestic applicant you will be classed as an international student.
