The Graduate Access Melbourne Bursary provides a one-off payment of $5,000 paid in the first semester of enrolment.

  • have applied for and received an offer of place under Graduate Access Melbourne, the University’s special entry scheme for graduate courses


Eligible Graduate Access Melbourne applicants are automatically considered for a Graduate Access Bursary.



Eligible students are selected on the basis of academic merit and the information about their personal circumstances in their Graduate Access Melbourne application


Usually, successful candidates will be notified via email around the time of receiving a course offer.
