Fees and loans

Study fees, student loans and payment options

There are various fees and costs associated with university study. Here we help you to estimate the costs of study (including tuition fees and other costs eg, materials and equipment), and provide information about payment options and government HELP loans.

Fees, costs and payment options to consider before starting university

Your tuition fees are calculated based on your residency status, your calendar year of study, and the course you are enrolled in.

Most courses and units of study have required or recommended course materials, such as books, readers, materials and equipment. There may also be additional costs for your degree to cover other resources.

The Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) is charged each semester to fund non-academic services and to support programs at the University.

Health insurance is compulsory for most international students who are studying in Australia. You will be required to pay or give evidence of your overseas student health cover when you accept your offer.

Set a realistic budget by understanding the costs you’re likely to face as a student in Sydney. These include accommodation, transport, childcare and schooling for school-age dependents, and other living expenses.

The Government provides several Higher Education Loan Programs (HELP) to assist eligible domestic students with the costs of their fees. These programs include HECS-HELP, FEE-HELP and SA-HELP.

If you are a domestic student intending to undertake some of your studies overseas, you may be eligible for OS-HELP assistance.

If you are from the United States, Canada, Norway, Sweden or the United Kingdom, you may be eligible to apply for education loan schemes from your home country.
