New Colombo Plan Language Grants
In some cases, UTS may have received additional NCP Language Grants of $1000 to support 'not for credit' language studies related to a NCP Mobility Grant. This will support study of the language of the country in which you will be studying, before you commence your semester.
Contact UTS's exchange team to find out whether language grants are available for the country you have selected for your exchange. If available, notify the exchange team of your intention to apply.
After you have been accepted by your host university, you will need to prepare and lodge evidence of enrolment in a 'not for credit' language course before you commence your exchange semester. Language grants cannot be awarded after you have commenced your semester of exchange.
New Colombo Plan Internship Grants
The Australian Government considers internships as integral to the New Colombo Plan. Internships help students prepare for the workplace, enabling them to establish professional connections in the region and link their study experience directly to career opportunities.
In some cases, UTS may have received additional NCP Internship Grants of $1000 to support internships related to a NCP Mobility Grant.
After you have been accepted by your host university, you will need to prepare and lodge evidence of an offer of internship to commence during or after your exchange semester. Internship grants cannot be awarded after you have completed your semester of exchange.
