The Department of Education & Training, in partnership with the Chinese Ministry of Education, is offering three scholarships for current Victorian Year 12 students to study in China in 2019. Successful applicants will receive a full scholarship for study in 2019 and undertake their choice of either a four-year undergraduate degree program, or a one-year Chinese language program, in a Chinese university. This year, six students are about to embark on their one-year language study. Caroline Pollock from Bendigo Senior Secondary College will be studying at Zhejiang University, one of the top institutions in China.
The scholarship covers tuition, basic learning materials, accommodation on-campus, living allowance, comprehensive medical insurance, a one-off settlement subsidy after registration and a one-off inner-city travel allowance. It does not cover airfares.
