Most short courses require full fees for the courses taken and generally are around $2,000 - $3,000 for 4-6 weeks. However, some of our partner universities offer discounts on the tuition fees for Gifu-city students participating in their programs.
Gifu-city may provide travel scholarships to selected students wishing to undertake global mobility programs that sit outside the formal semester exchange program.
Gifu-city students receiving credit for their short course may be eligible to apply for the Australian Government OS Help Loan. OS-HELP provides Commonwealth Government financial assistance to eligible students, to help pay a range of overseas study expenses. Students may receive loans from AUD$1000, indexed annually, for up to two non-overlapping six month study periods.
