University of Tasmania and ACORN partnership
ACORN has partnered with the University of Tasmania (UTAS) to offer a postgraduate nursing program. As a member of ACORN you can study in this program and get a scholarship on your HECS fees.
In order to be eligible for an ACORN member scholarship you must be a current member of ACORN. You must submit proof of membership when you apply for the Bachelor of Nursing, Professional Honours (course code H4F). Please contact ACORN, on firstname.lastname@example.org, for a proof of membership letter.
In order to be eligible for the scholarship you must apply for the Bachelor of Nursing, Professional Honours (course code H4F). If you choose to finish studying after one year you will graduate with a Graduate Certificate in Nursing (H5F). If you choose to finish studying after two years without undertaking research you will graduate with a Graduate Diploma of Nursing (H6F).
If you apply for the Graduate Certificate in Nursing or the Graduate Diploma of Nursing, and not the Bachelor of Nursing, Professional Honours, you will not be eligible for the scholarship.
