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.
If you are an international student, you may be eligible for a range of scholarships or grants.
There are some CSP places available. Full fee places and scholarships are also be available to Australian and International students. Domestic students are eligible for financial assistance through HECS-HELP and FEE-HELP and may also be eligible for Youth Allowance and Austudy. The University will offer a number of access and equity scholarships.
