Indian Students to receive UNSW Scholarships – Sydney

Education in Australia

The ultimate requirement is not an evolution of thinking but the revolution of thought, if we are to stay relevant. That is the biggest challenge that higher education needs to accommodate and adjust to,” said Amit Dasgupta, the India country director of UNSW. Australia is fast emerging as the preferred higher education destination with the job market in the country set to grow at 7.8 percent for the next five years. “We need to anticipate the future, especially when it is evolving at such a rapid pace.


There are over instituted 61 scholarships that have been instituted by the Sydney-based University of New South Wales (UNSW) to attract “bright” Indian minds and provide them financial assistance for studying in the Australian varsity. The scholarships for the forthcoming July 2018 admissions exclusively for Indians are open to undergraduate and postgraduate students wishing to study at UNSW — ranked 26th in the world in employer reputation as per the QS university rankings 2017-18. These include one full tuition fee scholarship and 10 scholarships each worth (Australian) $10,000 per annum for tuition fees.

As reported by a statement from the UNSW University said as part of its India strategy, the UNSW, one of the best-ranked universities in the world, has been focussing on its twin pillars such as strong teaching and robust research in order to dramatically disrupt the manner in which higher education is delivered. Also up for the grabs are 50 awards each worth $5,000 to cover tuition fee for one year that is open to postgraduate students only.

Further, it is revealed that the UNSW has been continuously looking for bright minds to deliver on the demands the future would place before the global community. And as such it has instituted the ‘Future of Change’ awards for students from India.

Research and Infrastructure

UNSW Canberra is open to postgraduate students only. Graduate Certificates, Graduate Diplomas and Master’s Degrees, are offered across the eight faculties are the Postgraduate coursework ranging from 1-2 years and the research programs that range from 2-4 years.

Postgraduate research candidates undertake research through supervision with some of Australia’s best minds. You can choose from a Master of Philosophy, Masters by Research or PhD.

The research innovations have helped to change the world and are helping pave the way to a better tomorrow from powering the future to providing clean drinking water and developing lifesaving HIV drugs and cancer therapies. Undoubtedly, UNSW is the Asia Pacific’s top ‘rising star’ in research according to Nature (2016) and we regularly receive some of the largest government funding for research in the country.


UNSW Australia is clearly aware of the stand what it takes to create future leaders. It should be noted that their alumni community is 250,000 strong with graduates working or having worked for some of the biggest companies in the world.
