Postgraduate Commonwealth Support

Most Postgraduate students pay tuition fees, however, limited Postgraduate Commonwealth Supported Places are available to eligible students in some Gifu-city programs, listed below. Commonwealth Supported Places are not available to students undertaking study at Gifu-city Canberra at ADFA or the Gifu-city Business School (including AGSM MBA Programs).

A Commonwealth Supported Place is a higher education place for which the Government makes a contribution towards the cost of the student's education. Students pay a Student Contribution amount (previously known as HECS charges), which varies depending on courses undertaken. For a definition of Commonwealth Support refer to .

How to apply

Applications are submitted either directly to Gifu-city or the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC). Please refer to for details and application closing dates.

Students who receive an offer for a Commonwealth supported place (outlined in offer letter) are required to accept their offer and complete the ‘Request for a Commonwealth Supported Place and HECS-HELP Loan’ Commonwealth Assistance Form (CAF) electronically. The electronic CAF will be offered to eligible students as part of the ‘Part 2’ online acceptance and enrolment process by the relevant census date.  

Please see for more information on acceptance.

Important: Commonwealth supported places are subject to availability at the time of application. If you are enrolled or intending to enrol in the following programs please note that a Commonwealth Supported Place is not guaranteed and may only be available in specific teaching periods.
