OASES Needs Your Support

As a not-for-profit organisation OASES Graduate School depends on the generous support of our donors. Your support is an invaluable and necessary complement to the income we receive through tuition fees. We receive no government funding, so simply could not operate without support from you, and others like you, who believe in the education for sustainability and social change that OASES offers. Thank you for helping us to continue working towards our vision: A world where people recognise they are part of a natural global ecosystem and live sustainably in community with all human and non-human beings. 

OASES Graduate School is committed to creating more conscious, connected and sustainable societies through individual and social transformation. 

Our transformative learning program provides individuals and organisations with the opportunity to engage deeply in the world, and the skills and confidence to take this understanding out into their families, workplaces, communities and society. 

Unlike universities offering accredited postgraduate programs, we do not receive any public funding, yet are required to meet the same rigorous accreditation standards as larger tertiary institutions. 

Your donation will ensure that we can continue to provide transformative learning opportunities and as a society work towards more sustainable and meaningful ways of living.

What your support can help us accomplish:

Image Donate

funds an application to become an approved FEEHELP provider

funds the part of the application that is peak body membership (compulsory to be an approved FEEHELP provider)

funds the part of the application that is the trusted consultant we have lined up to help negotiate the process for us

This is the vital next step for OASES, to open up access to those unable to pay upfront fees, to put us on a level playing field with universities & most other higher education providers as approved FEEHELP providers, & to reduce our administrative costs.

funds a full year scholarship for the Masters program in Sustainability & Social Change

funds a half-year scholarship

funds a single unit scholarship

Our education programs are based in the world, for the world. While unlike universities, we do not receive any public funding or government supported places. If you are inspired by this form of education, please support it.

Your support means that we will be able to continue the Masters program, offer assistance to students who otherwise could not afford to enrol, maintain a highly personalised & supportive learning environment, while keeping our fees the lowest in the land.

Thanks for your support.

Since OASES was founded in 2006, volunteering has underpinned and driven much of our work. This isn’t just because it is a ‘free’ source of labour, but because it is central to who we are. We see volunteering as being at the heart of living well together, gifting to each other, being there for each other, and to work together on the things we believe in. After all, money is only one means to those ends. If you are called to such a vision of volunteering, please be in touch.
