Domestic Undergraduate students in a Commonwealth supported place (CSP)

All domestic undergraduate students studying award courses are automatically offered a . Commonwealth supported place (CSP) when they apply to the University. This means the Australian Government subsidises their course fees and they only have to pay the balance of the fees or the “student contribution” amount set by the University for their particular study

Eligible domestic students in CSP places may defer their Summer School fees to HECS-HELP.

From 1 January 2017, changes to Australian Government legislation came into effect, removing the 10% HECS-HELP discount on any upfront payments made to the University and the 5% bonus for voluntary payments of a HELP debt to the Australian Taxation Office.

Domestic Postgraduate Students

Most domestic postgraduate students study in a fee-paying place.

The Australian Government does not subsidise fee-paying places. However, the government-funded loan program FEE-HELP is available to eligible domestic postgraduate coursework students to assist in paying their tuition fees.

A limited number of Commonwealth supported places (CSPs) may be available for some postgraduate courses, on a competitive basis. Refer to your specific course in sydney.edu.au/courses to determine if it offers CSPs.
