The University of South Australia is currently accepting applications for the International Research Tuition Scholarships (IRTS) 2024. These scholarships are awarded to support eligible international students who wish to pursue a research degree in Masters or PhD level in any field of their choice, through a specific research project. Depending on their sponsorship conditions, some applicants may need to develop their own project with a UniSA supervisor.

The IRTS scholarships are granted based on academic merit and demonstrated research capability of international applicants. The scholarships provide a full living stipend supported by external funding, such as a recognised sponsor or external scholarship awarding body. The tuition fees of the IRTS cover up to 2 years for research Masters and 3 years for a PhD. However, the applicants will have to source an Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC).
