Fee-Paying

Domestic fee-paying students are responsible for the 'real cost' of their program. Fee-paying students are required to pay their tuition fees directly to the University or, if eligible, may access FEE-HELP to cover some or all of their tuition fees.

The annual fee for a particular program is based upon the standard full-time enrolment of 24 units per year. The amount to be paid therefore depends upon your program of study and your enrolment load. Should you 'overload' or 'under load', your fees will be increased or decreased accordingly. Fees will also vary depending on the program you are studying.

Commencing students and Commonwealth Supported students can search Course Planner to find the cost of their courses.

Continuing fee-paying students can use the Continuing Students Fee Calculator to find the cost of their courses.

Please note: The fees quoted should be used as a guide, as some variations may occur where rounding is required or where a fee paying student commenced their program prior to 2008.

2008 was the last year the University offered Australian Fee Based Enrolment (AFBE) places to local undergraduate students, however International Students who gain permanent residency can be transferred into a domestic fee-paying place.

Undergraduate Programs

Fee-paying places for commencing domestic students in undergraduate programs are no longer offered.

However fee-paying places are still valid for:

  • students in Australian Fee-Based Enrolment (AFBE) places who commenced their program of study prior to 1 January 2009.
  • students who advise they do not want a Commonwealth Supported Place
  • international students who gain permanent residency (but not for all programs)
  • students in employer-reserved places
  • students who are overseas trained and completing approved bridging studies.

The University also sets fees for undergraduate courses:

  • undertaken on a non-award basis, i.e. without leading to any university award.

For further details of eligibility for a fee-paying undergraduate place, and for information on fees, go to the Commonwealth Government's Study Assist Link to external website website.
