A domestic fee-paying place is one for which the University does not receive any government funding. Students enrolled in these places contribute to the full 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.
Tuition fee charges
Tuition fees are program-based annual fees and the fees you pay will vary according to the degree you are studying and your study load. The annual tuition fee is based on a standard study load (full-time enrolment of 120 credit points or 1 EFTSL) per year unless stated otherwise. The 2018 schedule of higher education tuition fees for domestic postgraduate students is available here.
You will be charged tuition fees for each semester you enrol and you will pay fees according to your specific enrolment. Fees are calculated for each course by multiplying the course study load by the applicable program annual fee.
Tuition fees for students commencing 2018 onwards
For students who commence their program from 1 January 2018 tuition fees will be charged according to the annual fee applicable to the year in which they are studying. Tuition fees are reviewed on an annual basis and may increase each calendar year.
Fees are fixed for each calendar year (1 January - 31 December) and any fee increase will be applied at the beginning of each year. A student commencing in Semester 2 or Summer Semester may find that their total program cost will be slightly higher than if they had commenced in Semester 1.
Tuition fees for students who commenced prior to 2018
For students who commenced their program prior to 2018 tuition fees will remain fixed for the program duration. You will be charged the published annual tuition fee which applies to your year of commencement and you will retain this tuition fee rate for the duration of your program. If you change programs or commence a new program after 1 January 2018 you will be charged the annual tuition fee applicable to the year in which you are studying.
