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.

Commonwealth supported

Some domestic postgraduate students are offered a Commonwealth supported place where the majority 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.  From 2016 this will include some New Zealand citizens.  New Zealand citizens can check this website to see whether they meet the eligibility requirements.

Please note: 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. For more information, please visit StudyAssist

Courses on the Programs and Courses website will be updated to reflect the changed Student Contribution Bands over the coming weeks.

The information on this page will be updated as it becomes available.

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.  From 2016 this will include some New Zealand citizens.  New Zealand citizens can check this website to see whether they meet the eligibility requirements.
