DESTINATION AUSTRALIA SCHOLARSHIPS ARE NOW CLOSED
We're excited to announce 11 new Destination Australia Scholarships at our newly opened Byron Bay campus. These scholarships are available thanks to funding from the Australian Government and aim to support people who choose to live and study in a regional area of Australia.
