In the Australian higher education system, Australian citizens, New Zealand citizens, and holders of an Australian permanent visa are classed as 'domestic students'.
As a domestic student, you will either pay a student contribution towards your fee by having a Commonwealth Supported Place or you will be a full fee-paying student.
