Postgraduate Law Fees

Postgraduate Coursework Fees

The University’s tuition fees are reviewed annually and may be varied during a student’s period of study. The exact tuition fee for a course may depend on the specific units of study in which a student enrols. Fees are charged upfront each semester.
Students will no longer be mailed a “Statement of Fees Due”. The Statement can be accessed online or downloaded from MyUni. Full payment for the current semester’s fees (including late semester intensive units) must be made by the due date as indicated on the Statement. If your intensive unit commences before the payment due date, full payment must be made prior to attending the first class. Payment for any additional units enrolled after the original payment due date will have to be made within 14 days from the date of enrolment. Please refer to payment/refund method. Australian citizens and holders of permanent humanitarian visas may elect to defer their tuition fee payment through the Commonwealth Government’s FEE-HELP scheme. For further details, please visit HECS and Domestic Fees Office website

Please note: The proposed cap on the amount you can deduct for work-related self-education expenses will NOT be implemented. You can find more information on the Australian Taxation Office website

Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSA fee)

In October 2011, the Australian Parliament passed the Higher Education Legislation Amendment (Student Services and Amenities) Bill 2010, allowing universities to charge a Student Services and Amenities fee (SSA fee) of up to $263 from 1 January 2012 (indexed annually thereafter) as an initiative to increase student support and services in Australian universities. The University of Sydney will be charging the fee from 1 January 2012. The fee will be calculated based on the student’ semester load (i.e. full time / part time status) and will be charged on a semester basis. There will be a new component of the HELP scheme, called SA-HELP, which will allow eligible students to defer the payment of their SSA fee.
