Revised Conditions of Award for Scholarships, Bursaries and Discounts for teaching periods impacted by Covid-19 restrictions

The University is committed to adapting our teaching and learning, and student experiences in response to Covid-19. We recognise the significant disruption to our students caused by COVID-19, and that adjustment to studying online can take some time.

To support you in achieving the best possible results for your units, we recently announced the extension of the Academic Safety Net for semester 2, 2020.

A revision to the Conditions of Award for Scholarships, Bursaries and Discounts have been made to align with these changes.

All siblings must be enrolled concurrently in at least a standard (full) study load of 24 credit points in the semester in a full-fee paying course.

Except for Condition No 2, the above revised conditions of award apply to all sibling discount recipients. The condition that all siblings must still be concurrently enrolled remains.

Sibling discount entitlements will cease to apply once siblings are not concurrently enrolled.

Notes: 

  • Tuition fee amount for tuition fee waivers (less than 100%), bursaries and sibling discounts are calculated based on the number of enrolled units. (eg if enrolled in 18 credit points/3 units, a RM3,750 bursary will be granted for an awarded RM5,000 bursary)
  • Stipend recipients will need to be enrolled to continue receiving the stipend.
