Payment methods

Tuition fees at Summer and Winter School are due within 4 calendar days of enrolment for continuing students and 10 calendar days of enrolment for external students.

International students pay full fees during Summer School. If you’re an international postgraduate student currently enrolled in award course at Sydney, you can request a rollover of fees from your account to pay your Summer School tuition fees. Login to your Sydney Student portal and follow the prompts to submit a request to rollover your tuition fees to cover the cost of your Summer School Unit of Study selection. You will be liable for the balance of any fees owing after completing your rollover request.
