In accordance with student travel procedures, air travel for students receiving any of the following scholarships/grants must be booked by Curtin’s Travel Management company. They will liaise with students to book their flights and invoice them directly.
Curtin Go Global Exchange Scholarships
Awarded to student(s) accepted at a host university for a semester exchange that can best articulate how the experience will contribute to their employability and personal development.
Curtin Go Global Finance Assistance Scholarships
Developed to assist students who may otherwise not have an opportunity to participate in the semester exchange program due to financial hardship.
New Colombo Plan (NCP) grants

If you currently receive Centrelink payments, you may still be eligible to receive your payments while overseas.
Centrelink will require a letter from Curtin which will be provided at your pre-departure session.

Costs to consider
The amount of money you will need while on an overseas study experience will vary depending on the duration of your program, current exchange rate, where you go and your personal spending habits and expectations.
Some costs to consider when preparing a budget are:
- Your travel
- Passport and visa expenses
- Travel and medical insurance
- Accommodation and food
- Transport such as cars or public transport
- Living costs such as mobile phones and personal items
- Course-related incidental costs such as lab fees or excursions, and
- Recreation money for further travel, gifts and eating out.
If you’re studying with one of our partner institutions, you will continue to pay your tuition to Curtin. You won’t be required to pay tuition fees to your host university.
Proof of funds
To make sure that you are able to support yourself, many host institutions and countries will require proof of funds (usually a bank statement) before they will issue visa documents.
