RMIT offers two international tuition fee scholarships: the RTP International Fee Offset Scholarship (RIFOS) and the RMIT Research International Tuition Fee Scholarship (RRITFS).
RIFOS scholarships are funded by the Australian Government and RRITFS scholarships are funded by RMIT University. When you apply for a research scholarship through one of the University’s rounds, you will automatically be considered for all the scholarships for which you are eligible.
Value and duration
Both RIFOS and RRITFS scholarships provide tuition fees for a period of 3 years, with the possibility of a 6 month extension.
The cost of Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) for the duration of your visa is also provided. If you have dependants, both international tuition fee scholarships will provide OSHC that also covers them. Awardees are required to cover the difference between program length OSHC and visa length OSHC which is required for a student visa application.
If you are awarded a tuition fee scholarship, your scholarship will be partnered with a stipend scholarship which will provide you with a living allowance.
