Virtual Tours

As new digital technologies emerge, some universities are looking at ways to improve their engagement with future students. Most universities at some stage in the year will have an open day, however, one of the latest experiences are virtual tours. These are great, if you are looking to attend a university that is not in your current location and saves you time travelling within your country or overseas to work out what the university is like and information about the local area.

In addition to the information already available on Links4UniLife, we suggest that when attending a university virtual open day, you consider asking the following questions:

  • Are there any scholarships or grants that I can apply for?
  • How many contact hours does my degree have?
  • What facilities are available for my degree?
  • What is included in the accommodation price?
  • Where are the nearest food shops to my accommodation?
  • What student services are offer and is there a Student Union?
  • Do I need a car to travel around the local area?
  • What sports and/or clubs and societies do the university offer?

Scholarships in Australia

There are several types of scholarships, grants, and subsidies in Australia for university students. Often applied directly through universities, they can also be offered by the Australian Government and other public and private organisations. It is important to investigate what scholarships are available in your chosen subject and/or your university, so that when required you can submit an application. In most cases, these applications will be submitted directly with the scholarship provider.
