When you progress to your degree

Great news! As long as you successfully complete your program at the College of International Education, you will receive a progression scholarship (unless you are entering most of the Health Science Bachelor programs that have a strict quota). For most students, this means a 10% reduction off the cost of your degree – that is up to a massive $17,575 over 4 years!
