More than a million Australians are studying overseas each year, but few can afford to fly to a city like Sydney, with the average cost of living in Australia already high.
What is a fairfield scholarship?
It’s a student-based scholarship that pays for travel expenses and accommodation, plus other living expenses, in exchange for a work placement in a different Australian city.
Fairfield Scholarships have been in place in Australia for decades, with some countries like New Zealand and Japan offering similar programs.
What are the qualifications required to apply?
Students must have a Bachelor of Business or related skills and be able to speak the local language.
The program is also available to people with a disability.
They can also take a language-specific test, such as one from a local language school.
What’s the catch?
If you can’t afford to live in Sydney, you can apply for a fairground scholarship from overseas.
You’ll need to be from a non-English-speaking country that offers similar programs, and be in good health and fit to work in Sydney.
The deadline for applications is April 1.
What happens if I get accepted?
You can apply to be part of a fairgrounds scholarship, but it won’t automatically award you a place.
You will have to do some research to find the city you want to go to and apply to live there.
You can find the nearest fairgrounds program online or by visiting your local council office.
How do I apply?
The application process is the same as it is for university students.
You must have the relevant academic qualifications to study in Australia and the relevant language.
You should also be able.
speak the language of your choice.
If you are interested in living in a foreign country, you must also submit an online application to join a fairfields scholarship program.
What do the fairgrounds scholarships offer?
You’ll be paid $1,000 for a three-month period of study.
Your job will be in the city in which you study, but you will be paid the same amount each month, and the duration of the placement will depend on your job.
In addition, you will have the opportunity to learn about Australia and culture in the fairground program.
Fairfields are also designed to offer opportunities for people with disabilities, who can’t speak their chosen language or cannot work in the language they speak.
What about housing?
Fairfields can’t cover everyone, but there are other ways to fund your trip.
The scholarships will cover up to four nights per person, so you can stay at a hostel or hotel, as long as you can afford it.
You could also take advantage of free accommodation in Sydney’s CBD.
You also need to have a job, be able, and have a good understanding of the local culture.
Fairgrounds scholarships are available in Australia from April 1 and can be applied online.
You might also want to check your local councils website, or contact your local fairgrounds office for more information.
