Domestic postgraduate coursework tuition fees

Postgraduate coursework programs are normally undertaken by someone who has completed an undergraduate Degree or obtained significant relevant professional experience.

The type of fees you are required to pay depends on whether you are Commonwealth supported or not. Your offer of admission will indicate if you have been offered a Commonwealth supported place.

All students will be issued with an invoice via ISIS within a few days of enrolling in their courses.

Non-Commonwealth supported

Most domestic postgraduate coursework students are not Commonwealth supported. Students who are not Commonwealth supported are required to pay:

  • domestic tuition fees
  • services and amenities fee

Eligible students may defer their domestic tuition fees to FEE-HELP.  This includes some New Zealand citizens.  New Zealand citizens can check this website to see whether they meet the eligibility requirements.

Domestic tuition fees are shown on the fees tab of the relevant course page on the Programs and Courses website.

Commonwealth supported

On 19 October 2020, the Job-ready Graduates Package passed in parliament. This means from 1 January 2021, there will be some changes to Australia's higher education student contribution bands. 

From 1 January 2021, the Australian Government reintroduced the 10% upfront payment discount for eligible Commonwealth supported students.

To receive the HECS-HELP discount, you must be eligible for HECS-HELP assistance. The upfront discount applies to upfront payments of $500 or more made on or before the census date of the enrolled session.

You will receive a discount of 10% on the upfront payment you make. You may choose to pay some of your student contributions upfront (minimum $500) and defer the rest with a HECS‑HELP loan.

Your student invoice located on your ISIS account will display the 10% discount for eligible students. If you do not to make an upfront payment by the census date of your enrolled session, you will not be eligible to receive the 10% discount and the full cost of your tuition fees will be deferred to your HECS-HELP loan.

Some domestic postgraduate students are offered a Commonwealth supported place where a portion of your tuition fee is paid by the Australian government. As a Commonwealth supported student, you are required to pay:

  • student contribution amount
  • services and amenities fee.

Eligible students may defer their student contribution to HECS-HELP.  This includes some New Zealand citizens.  New Zealand citizens can check this website to see whether they meet the eligibility requirements.
