Changes to Commonwealth Supported Postgraduate Funding (CSP)

News story

*subject to passage of legislation 

From 1 January 2019, the Australian Government will implement a ‘student-centred’ model for the distribution of Commonwealth Supported postgraduate coursework places, ensuring the places are used at the institutions where students want to study.  

If you enrol in a postgraduate Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP) in 2018, you will be able to study in that place during 2018. However, if you wish to undertake or continue postgraduate study from 1 January 2019 (unless you were offered a CSP in your course before 2 May 2017), you will need to apply for and be awarded a postgraduate CSP scholarship place if you want to access a CSP. 

For further information please refer to the Study Assist website. 

Note: Students who are currently studying in a Postgraduate Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP) or have formally accepted an offer to study in a Postgraduate CSP before 2 May 2017 will maintain their CSP until they finish their course or up until 31 December 2020. Students who are offered or who commenced a course in a CSP after 2 May 2017, can continue as a CSP until 31 December 2018.
