Tuition Fees Summary

Domestic Undergraduate and Postgraduate Coursework Students

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

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

All domestic undergraduate students, and some domestic postgraduate students, are Commonwealth supported. This means they are not liable for the full tuition fee for a course.

The Australian government pays a portion of the tuition fee for Commonwealth supported students. The remaining amount is called the 'student contribution'. Domestic students are encouraged to read the sections below on HECS-HELP and FEE-HELP. Most domestic graduate coursework and non-award students at ANU are required to pay domestic tuition fees (DTF). The table below summarises these contributions with details in the fees schedule.

For the purposes of determining student contribution amounts, courses are categorised by their broad discipline (student contribution bands). ANU degree programs allow the flexibility to take courses across multiple bands. The student contribution amounts applicable to each discipline are listed below. Specific course contribution amounts are listed on the relevant course entry on the Programs & Courses website. The student contribution amount differs based on which band the relevant course belongs to. The amount charged per course is apportioned on the equivalent full-time student load (EFTSL) value of the course.  Full details are provided throughout these pages.

Continuing Students Enrolled Before 1 January 2021

Continuing students (enrolled before 1 January 2021) studying courses in disciplines with increased student contribution amounts, will continue paying the same amount as they would have, had these reforms not been implemented for any courses that would otherwise have an increased student contribution.

HECS-HELP Up-front Payment Discount

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.

For more information on the HECS-HELP upfront discount, please visit Study Assist.
