Scholarships and financial assistance

SIBT equity programs aim to make tertiary education accessible to all eligible students, regardless of their background. 


Merit scholarships

The Navitas Academic Merit Scholarship is awarded each semester to two students who have achieved the most outstanding results across all programs at SIBT. The scholarship is equivalent to one academic semester or part thereof (maximum of up to five academic subjects) for a diploma, advanced diploma or associate degree.

SIBT also offers the Navitas Family Bursary, which applies when two or more students from the same family selects to study one program only at SIBT. Eligible students are entitled to 10 per cent off their tuition fees. 

The bursary does not apply to additional units or repeat units that may also be undertaken and excludes mixed English options.
