What does the COPA look like?

The COPA is divided into eight or nine sections, depending on your application type. These sections make up the horizontal navigation bar displayed along the top of each page.

  • Application Type
  • Personal Details
  • Application Details
  • Education
  • Qualifications
  • Organ (only if you're applying for an Organ Scholarship)
  • Fees & Funding
  • Additional Information
  • Pay & Submit 

Each section is made up of one or more pages. Some pages are only relevant to overseas applicants or only to Organ Scholarship applicants. If pages aren't relevant to you they will be hidden.

All questions are accompanied by a ‘Help Text’ panel that provides guidance to help you with your answers. Further help is available in the Guide to Completing the COPA (PDF). We recommend that you download and read this guide before starting your COPA.
