If you are an international student in Victoria experiencing financial hardship, you may be eligible for emergency financial support through the Victorian Government’s Extreme Hardship Support Program.

The program is for temporary and provisional visa holders and undocumented migrants, including international students, who:

  • are experiencing significant hardship as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19); and
  • have little or no income, savings or community support.
