  • The scholarship is applicable to only the specific course as indicated in the letter of offer.
  • The scholarship discount will be divided evenly across the total amount of units in the course and applied each study period to each unit being undertaken, not in a lump sum.
  • The scholarship only covers tuition fees and does not cover any other non-tuition fees or expenses.
  • Students must successfully pass all units attempted each semester/term otherwise the scholarship will be revoked by EIT.
  • The scholarship will be forfeited if the student defers their course or withdraws from the course, unless otherwise approved by EIT.
  • If a student is involved in any academic misconduct, owes a debt to EIT (i.e. does not pay fees on time) or becomes a student at risk at any time during their course then the scholarship will be forfeited.

  • Scholarships may be applied only toward tuition fees and are subject to review in the case of enrolment changes, extension of the course of study beyond the normal program length, or external tuition scholarship support which, when combined with the EIT’s scholarship, exceeds the cost of tuition.
  • The 35% reduction will only apply to units to be studied by the student. If a student receives Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), the course tuition fee amount will be reduced accordingly and the 35% scholarship will only apply to the reduced course tuition fee amount.
