Washington DC Placement Program

The cost of the Washington DC Placement Program is a combination of the University of Sydney Business School tuition fee, the program package fee, and additional costs.

Note: the program package fee is quoted in US dollars, as the majority of the costs covered under this fee are payable in US dollars. However, the final amount payable will be in Australian dollars and the exchange rate will be determined one week before the deadline for the final fee payment.
