International Student Childcare Rebate

If you’re a current international student at Monash University, you may be eligible for university funded primary school childcare.

Camp Australia Vacation Care Program

Camp Australia's Vacation Care Program is a great way to keep your children entertained and engaged during the school holidays.

You may be eligible to claim a rebate for these services provided by Camp Australia at Monash University Clayton campus.

Check your eligibility

To be eligible for the rebate, make sure:

  • you are a current international student at Monash University
  • your child is within the age of 5 – 12 years

You are not eligible if you are:

  • an international student who is eligible to receive Federal Government Funded Child Care Subsidy (effective July 2)
  • an international student on an Australia Awards or Endeavour Award scholarship
  • an Australian Citizen or Permanent Resident
  • a Monash College student.

How the rebate works

For each of your children aged between 5-12 years, you will receive 50% of the daily rate. This is capped at two days a week for each child.

  1. Bookings and full payment should be made directly to Camp Australia before claiming the rebate.
  2. Apply online for the rebate.
  3. Attach a copy of your receipt of payment to Camp Australia and submit your application before the deadline (see below).
