Australian Scholarships for Year 12 ATAR Students
As educators, we understand that the determination of tertiary education can be an exciting, yet challenging experience for both parents and students. Parents may have to consider various factors from quality of education, types of curriculum and program, location, and most importantly financial commitment.
Our school is very unique in this sense since we are the only international school in Thailand to work directly under the Western Australian Government to offer the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) program. Upon their Year 12 graduation, our students will be given various scholarship offers, ranging from scholarships from the Australian government itself, as well as from various Australian universities.
Please note that for most university scholarships, the amount of the scholarship grants will depend on students' achievement in the ATAR.
Below is the list of scholarship currently being offered to our Year 12 ATAR students:
WESTERN AUSTRALIAN PREMIER'S WACE BURSARY WORTH $AUD 20,000
The Government of Western Australia will grant any non-Australian student graduating from St. Mark's Year 12 ATAR program with the Western Australian Premier's WACE Bursary. This scholarship will provide a one-off payment of $20,000 (Australian Dollars) to all successful applicants to reimburse some of the costs involved with studying at any university in Western Australia. This scholarship is an unconditional offer from the Western Australian Government and does not depend on the student's ATAR achievement.
