You may get Austudy if you are studying full-time in an approved award course at UTS and you are
- 25 years of age when you begin your course, or
- in certain Masters courses that are required for professional entry.
Unlike Youth Allowance, there is no requirement to satisfy 'independence criteria' to receive the higher fortnightly payment rates of Austudy and the Independent YA. However, your personal income will be tested.
Note: Your previous studies may affect your eligibility for Austudy.
You can find current payment rates on the Human Services website (opens an external site).
