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.
