Australia Awards accompanying dependants

Can Australia Awards Awardees bring their family with them when they arrive in Australia?

Your scholarship does not include any additional funding or support for dependants. If you wish to bring your family members to Australia you must assess whether you have the financial means and capability to support your family.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), Program Areas and UWA recommend you do not bring family members until three to six months after your arrival.  

You should have completed your Introductory Academic Program (IAP) before making arrangements for your family to join you. The first six months will be the most difficult as you adjust to your new environment and study.
