Type of Funding
The University of Tasmania is offering the International Women in Maritime Engineering Scholarship to international young female students applying for undergraduate and Masters degree programmes in maritime engineering at the University’s National Centre for Maritime Engineering and Hydrodynamics (NCMEH) commencing AY 2020. These are accommodation scholarships for female international students applying for the following programmes:
- Bachelor of Engineering (Specialisation) with Honours (P4F1) degree program, majoring in Naval Architecture, Ocean Engineering or Marine and Offshore Engineering on the Launceston campus.
- Master of Engineering (Maritime Design) (27B1) on the Launceston campus ommencing Semester 1 or 2, 2020.
The undergraduate scholarship covers 75% of the first year of the on-campus accommodation costs at 1 of the Halls of Residence in Launceston. To retain this award, recipients are required to achieve a minimum Pass result in all units studied each semester.
The postgraduate scholarship covers 100% of the first semester of the on-campus accommodation costs at 1 of the Halls of Residence in Launceston.
Scholarship applicants must be female International Students who have received and accepted an offer of a full-time, on campus place in either the Bachelor of Engineering (Specialisation) with Honours (P4F1) course or the Master of Engineering (Maritime Design) (27B1) course. They must be commencing students with the University of Tasmania on the Launceston Campus (students entering with advanced standing for studies completed at another institution are not eligible for this bursary).
Applicants have to pay the commencement fee outlined in their Letter of Offer and have applied for accommodation with University of Tasmania Accommodation Services for on-campus accommodation in Investigator Hall, Kerslake Hall or Leprena. They are responsible for the accommodation application fee and bond, as these costs are not covered by the scholarship.
International students applying for the Bachelor of Engineering (Specialisation) with Honours (P4F1) degree programme must have completed secondary Mathematics and Physics (or an equivalent Science subject) to a level that would gain them entry to tertiary professional engineering courses in Australia. Those whose first language is not English must provide evidence that they are competent in written and spoken English.
Applicants for the Master of Engineering (Maritime Design) programme must possess a full 4-year Australian Bachelor of Engineering degree, or equivalent. English language requirements are at least an IELTS score of 6.0 (with no band less than 6.0).
As students are assessed automatically for the International Women in Maritime Engineering Scholarship upon submission of their International Student Application, there is no need for a separate scholarship application. Applications for AY 2020 for the Bachelor of Engineering (Specialisation) with Honours (P4F1) degree program are to be done online by 30 September 2019, whilst the online applications for the Master of Engineering (Maritime Design) programme are to be done by 31 October 2019.
