This notice will go ahead to brief you on everything you need to know concerning the scholarship including the fast-approaching deadline which every interested candidate should endeavour to beat.


Brief Background Of The University Of Western Australia Global Excellence Scholarship
The University of Western Australia Global Excellence Scholarship is an annual scholarship program which is offered to certain categories of scholars. The said categories consist of undergraduates and postgraduate students who have accumulated a high level of achievements from selected countries across the world.
Such individuals are, therefore, aiming to further their studies at the University of Western Australia. The Scholarship is a tuition fee reduction facility for the normal full-time duration of the beneficiary’s course as specified in their letter of offer. The assessment of the Scholarship is ascertained by the applicant’s equivalent Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR).

Application Information and Guides
Application for the scholarship is only processed through the online portal which is on the school’s website. As such, there are absolutely no provisions made for E-MAIL, postal, or physical submission.

Interested applicants are hereby instructed to visit the official website of the scholarship to successfully process their applications. Once on the homepage of the website, there is a clickable command on the displayed page “Apply Now”. Once this link is selected, it directs to the first stage of the application process which is the selection of the preferred program.

But before going through the process, it is required that an account is opened on the website. Candidates should therefore click on the second “Apply Now” command. There will be a pop up of the http://sign up/log in page. Select http://‘Sign up”.

Afterwards, provide the required details. The first data is the “Given Name” which is the applicant’s first name. This followed by the “Family Name” which is equivalent to the surname. Finally, provide your email address to which a link will be sent.

A confirmation of the link will provide the options to set a password on the website. With the password successfully set, the candidate could then proceed to log in to the site to continue with his or her application.

The Rest Of The Application Steps
The first thing to be done would be to select the program one seeks to study. The next page requires one to select which region one is applying from. At the bottom of the page are the main application links. Below the “Start my Application” option are two links “Apply Direct to UWA” and “Apply via an agent”.

Choose any of these options according to your preferred route of application and proceed from there. For the first link, the application would be processed and submitted straight to the school. For the second one, the application would be processed and submitted by someone else on behalf of the applicant.

The major difference between the two is basically financial involvement. While the first option has no necessary costs, applying through an agent requires a fee. However, it gives an edge since such agents have a better understanding of the processes and the documents required.

The application is scheduled to close on the 23rd of July 2021 which has always been the closing date for the program year in year out. The application here stated is the application for admission into the school. The scholarship does not have a separate admission process. Eligible candidates are automatically selected for the scholarship by the university.
