Overseas Electives

Short Term Mobility Scholarships:

Flinders offers $500 scholarships for short term international mobility to domestic and international students.

OS-HELP Loans:

In addition, from 1 January 2014 OS-HELP loans will be available to Australian citizens receiving credit for an international experience towards their degree. These loans are available for experiences within Asia (up to $7,500) or worldwide (up to $6,250); any amount borrowed is added to a student’s existing HECS debt and repaid through their income tax following graduation. Unfortunately OS-HELP loans are not available to permanent residents or international students.

The application deadline for rotations/placements in Jan-June 2014 is Friday 11 October 2013. Further details on these two options is available on the Scholarships Office website.
