Information for international sponsored students

Our faculty is recognised internationally for our innovative and exceptional standard of teaching, learning, practice and research in architecture, landscape architecture, urban design and fine arts.

The International Sponsored Student Unit (ISSU) is available to meet with sponsored students if they require assistance with their studies at the University of Western Australia

The ISSU provides:

  • End of semester academic reports
  • Information and support for students whose children will be attending school
  • A response to any issues that are of concern to sponsors or sponsored students

Sponsorship extensions

Sponsored students must liaise with their sponsor directly if they have issues with their visa and sponsorship extension. It is the student's responsibility to ensure that their sponsorship is valid. For an extension you will need a further Financial Guarantee from your sponsor to secure an extension to visa. If the sponsorship lapses then the student is responsible for any incurred fees and expenses.

Change of course

If a sponsored student wishes to change the agreed course then the student will need to apply for the new course and organise a new Financial Guarantee or Sponsor Agreement from their sponsor.

It is important that the Sponsor Guarantee Letter Form (PDF 102KB) form is completed and returned when accepting the offer and when there is a change to your enrolment.
