No special application required for the Africa Excellence Scholarship

The University of Newcastle states:

"The Africa Excellence Scholarship has been established to attract high-performing international students to study at the University of Newcastle. This is a merit-based scholarship that recognises applicants with a strong academic background and incentivises them to continue striving to be the best that they can be. Scholarships will automatically be awarded to students who have received an offer to study in an eligible, non-quota program and who will commence studying with the University of Newcastle."

The first step is to apply to the University of Newcastle, Australia, and receive an offer of admission in a qualifying course of study.
