Mature age students
Returning to study after a long absence, or enrolling for the first time as a mature adult, can be a daunting experience that often involves great sacrifice.
Mature-age students are more likely than school leavers to be juggling responsibilities outside of university, such as employment, caring for children, and managing their household. They may also feel more socially isolated on campus than a school leaver might.
For these purposes, we have a mature-age social network on campus to help mature age students meet one another, exchange ideas, experiences and give support. All mature age students, are welcome.
Money Matters for Uni Students
Notre Dame Scholarships
Notre Dame offers a range of scholarship programs for students. While the selection criteria vary for each scholarship, community involvement and leadership roles, as well as academic performance and financial hardship, are considered as part of the application process.

Emergency Relief Assistance

It is a free directory for service providers, and people looking for assistance. It contains real time search results of emergency relief services, with phone numbers, operating hours, and directions on the services available.
You can search for food relief, financial counsellors, and emergency accommodation, among other services, and get a list of services that can provide assistance in the location that is convenient.
