Other Fees & Charges

Here are some of the other fees and charges relating to your time studying at University:

  • Student Services & Amenities Fee

    Please visit our Student Services & Amenities Fee page for more information.

  • Student Services Charges and Study-related Costs

    In addition to the Student Services and Amenities Fee, there are charges for other services provided by the University, including provision of transcripts, replacement of graduation parchments and graduation gown hire.

    The program tuition fee, Student Contribution, and HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP loans do not cover the cost of 'incidental' study-related goods and services provided by Schools and Faculties.

    All students should allow additional expenditure of at least $500 (AUD) per year for textbooks and basic study materials. Other costs may include specialist equipment (e.g. laboratory coats, microscopes, stethoscopes, musical instruments); optional supplementary reading and academic program materials; field trips; above-quota internet and printing costs; and research-related expenses such as thesis preparation, printing and binding. These costs will vary depending on the program in which you are enrolled.
