Best time to bring your family to Australia if you are an Australia Awards Scholarship student

I am an Australia Awards Scholarship student and would like to bring my family with me, can I do so?

The University recommends that your family does not join you in Australia until about 3 to 4 months after you have arrived. The reason for this is to allow you sufficient time to settle into your new environment and to ensure you are prepared and focussed for your study. We do not recommend that you bring your family during the time you are studying your Introductory Academic Program (IAP). 

Before bringing your family, you will need to ensure that you have considered the costs involved - accommodation, child care, Overseas Student Health Cover, Medical Examinations etc. 

DFAT does not provide any financial or other support for your dependants.
