When you must depart from Australia as an Australia Awards awardee

When will I need to depart Australia at the end of my course if I am an Australia Awards Awardee?

You are required to return to your home country prior to the expiry of your visa or within 30 days of the completion of studies, whichever comes first. You are not permitted to extend your visa to enable you to remain in Australia to attend your formal graduation ceremony.

The Student Contact Officer will have a meeting with completing scholars to discuss scholarship finalisation arrangements.
