Studying in the NT provides you with quality education, boundless employment opportunities, and the chance to live and work in a community close to so many spectacular locations.

Financial support

As a student, you could be eligible to one of three main support payments: youth allowance, ABSTUDY or Austudy.

Clinical placements

Flinders University supports clinical placements in rural and remote locations in the NT for health science students from universities across Australia.
