With Can Do, you can start that uni degree.
If you've always wanted to study a degree, but thought it was beyond your reach, a Can Do Scholarship from Open Universities Australia makes it possible.
- We help make study affordable. We'll cover the cost of the introductory units that help you gain access to a Commonwealth Supported place.
- We make it open for everyone. It doesn't matter what your level of education is, or even if you didn't finish school. As long as you don't already have a degree you can apply.
- We bring the university to you. Flexible learning means you can study online, in your own time, so you don't have to be 'on campus' to get your degree.
- We're always here to help. You can access support services such as free 24/7 online tutoring, to help you with your study.
Get the tuition of up to seven introductory units covered with a Can Do Scholarship! After completing these units, Can Do students can apply for a Commonwealth supported place, and eligible students can also apply for HECS-HELP.
To find out if you are eligible to get the degree you always wanted, enquire now or call 1300 420 066 to speak with a Student Advisor.
Students who complete their Can Do Scholarship units (up to 2 preparatory units and 4 undergraduate units are covered by the scholarship) are eligible for a Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP).
A CSP is a place in a university course where the Australian Government covers part of the cost of your degree. This means you can achieve your degree while paying lower fees!
And, as a CSP student, you may also be eligible for HECS-HELP, which allows you to defer the cost of your degree.
In 2012 80% of Can Do Scholarship applicants were successful, so you have nothing to lose.
To be eligible for a Can Do Scholarship, you must be:
- An Australian citizen, or a Permanent Humanitarian visa resident in Australia
- Able to demonstrate (in writing) your commitment and capability to study at university level
