Combined Law - The Sydney LLB - Costs and Fees


Dana Liu, Commerce/Law

“Studying law at the University of Sydney has really challenged me to think more critically and with a greater level of independence than demanded by any of my other subjects. The skills gained really will transcend the field of law and will serve as an advantage in countless aspects of both my academic and professional career."

Dana Liu, Economics/Law


Local Commonwealth supported students are required to pay on a deferred or up-front basis for each unit of study they complete. Units of study are divided into three bands. The amount you are required to pay depends on the 'discipline group' to which the individual units are assigned i.e. law, arts, science, engineering or commerce.

A full-time, full-year local Commonwealth supported contribution for law is $10,266 in 2015. Australian Citizens have the option to pay up-front and receive a 10 per cent discount, or defer and pay the full amount through the tax system. Australian Permanent Residents and New Zealand Citizens must pay up-front. You will be required to select a payment option at enrolment. It is possible to change your payment option throughout your degree program. Most students who study at the University of Sydney are domestic and Commonwealth supported. These students have most of the cost of their education paid by the government but must also contribute themselves. Annual contributions will depend on the course and subjects studied. Visit the Fees website for further information.

International fee-paying students are required to pay fees for each unit of study they complete. A full-time law load costs $43,600 per year for an international student in 2015. Non-law units are calculated according to the unit fee for the relevant Faculty.

The estimated fee-paying rates for local and international students are listed below. It represents a summary of the annual fee from Years 1 to 3 or Years 1 to 4 in the case of Arts (Media & Communications)/Law, Engineering/Law and Information Technology/Law. In the final two years of Combined Law, the annual course fee is $10,266 for local students and $43,600 for international students. The fee may be subject to change.
