Fees for international students

Course fees are calculated as if a student undertakes one year of full-time study. This is called 1 x EFTSL (Equivalent Full Time Study Load). If course duration is less than one year, or the student studies less than a full-time study load, fees are adjusted accordingly.

The indicative total course fee is based on typical subject enrolments and does not take into account any advanced standing for prior studies.

Fees are reviewed annually by the University and vary depending on subjects within the course.

Fees for domestic students

This course offers both Commonwealth Supported Places (CSPs) and Australian Fee places to domestic students. A CSP is subsidised by the Australian Government. Students pay a contribution amount that is determined by the Australian Government, based on the subjects undertaken. More details on fees and CSP student contribution amounts.

Students enrolled in an Australian Fee place are required to pay the full cost of their tuition fees to the University. More details on graduate course fees for Australian fee-paying students.

Financial assistance

If you are a domestic student, you may be eligible for financial assistance from the Australian Government. HECS-HELP is a loan from the government that pays for your tuition fees if you are enrolled in a Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP), and FEE-HELP is a loan that pays for your fees if you are enrolled in an Australian Fee Place. Both loan schemes work similarly, in that you don't have to pay anything back until you start work and earn above the yearly repayment threshold. More information about HELP loans is available via the Australian Government Study Assist website.

You may also be eligible to apply for income support via the Australian Government's different payment support programs, including Austudy, Youth Allowance or Abstudy. Find out more information about these programs here.
