Non-bursary students

Did you just hear about the Explore program and wish to apply after the deadline has passed?

Unfortunately, the application portal is closed, and it’s too late to apply for an Explore bursary this year.

But there is an alternative: you could apply to the program as a non-bursary student. This means you would apply directly to the institution of your choice (make sure they accept non-bursary students) and bypass the random lottery draw. However, as a non-bursary student, you would have to cover the tuition/accommodation costs (between $3,000 and $4,000) as well as your travel costs. Since the institutions that accept non-bursary students have different fees, eligibility criteria, and application deadlines, you should contact them directly for more information.

Good luck!
