If you’re a domestic student on a full-fee-paying place, it means your place receives no financial contribution from the government and you are required to pay the full cost of the course.
If you’re an international student, you are required to pay the full international fee for your course.
While some postgraduate courses offer Commonwealth supported places for domestic students, most are offered as full fee paying.
Tuition fees for full-fee-paying places are based on an annual course fee that is reviewed each year.
Annual fees are based on an equivalent full-time student load (EFTSL) of 24 credit points per semester or 48 credit points (1.0 EFTSL) per year. If your study load in any calendar year is more or less than 1.0 EFTSL your tuition fee will differ.
Indicative fees are available in Find a course.
From 2017, the University has changed the way we charge tuition fees for undergraduate fee-paying students. Previously, fees were set based on the units of study you chose. Now your fees are based on a single annual course fee. This will not affect your 2016 fees.
See our FAQs (pdf, 91KB) for more information on these changes.
If you’re studying in a combined program where for example, you are studying two undergraduate degrees side by side, the University will charge you a single annual course fee.
If you’re studying a combined or double degree where you commence in one degree and then progress to a second degree, you will pay two separate course fees, one for each individual program of study.
For example, if you’re enrolled in the Bachelor of Science and Master of Nutrition and Dietetics you will pay one fee for the undergraduate course and another, higher fee for the postgraduate course.
When you are calculating the likely total cost of your course you should factor in this price difference.
This degree is calculated differently to other combined programs as it has a combination of undergraduate – Bachelor of Veterinary Biology (Years 1 and 2) – and postgraduate components – Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) (Years 3 to 6).
There are two separate tuition fee rates that you will pay. You will pay higher tuition fees in Years 3 to 6 because study during those years is equivalent to the graduate-entry DVM.
Although the government does not subsidise fee-paying places, if you’re a domestic student you may be able to access the FEE-HELP loan scheme.
If you’re enrolled in a unit(s), which doesn’t count towards a formal award course, and it’s not cross-institutional study, your enrolment is classed as non-award.
We only offer non-award study on a full-fee-paying basis and students are charged tuition fees per subject.
If you are enrolled as a non-award student, you are not eligible for any Commonwealth support or loan-scheme assistance and need to meet the full cost of your tuition fees.
