Scholarships Offered by Australian Branch Campuses in Malaysia

In previous articles, we’ve talk about what a branch campus, how it differs from a twinning programme, as well as the 3 different Australian branch campuses that are currently located in Malaysia. At this point, many students would be certain that a branch campus is by and far the best option at their disposal, and if there were any lingering doubts being harboured, it would most likely be due to the fees. While fees at Australian branch campuses are wholly more affordable than studying in the country itself, many still balk at close to RM100,000 per course. However, with branch campuses offering their own in-house university scholarships, there may be hope yet.
