The International Sponsored Students Unit (ISSU) provides support to international scholarship and sponsored students and their sponsor organisations.

The Student Contact Officer in the ISSU is the first point of contact for Australia Awards Scholarship awardees and can assist with:

Other sponsored students can contact the ISSU for matters regarding their sponsorship or any issues they may need assistance with.

Sponsored students have their tuition fees either partially or fully paid by a third party sponsor.  It will be necessary for sponsored students and their sponsor organisations to be identified at both the application and acceptance stage of admission to UWA.  In order to do this, it is important that agreement forms are completed and returned when accepting an offer to study.


If you change your contact details at any time whilst at UWA, you must update Student Connect.  Australia Award scholarship holders must also inform the Student Contact Officer at the ISSU immediately.
