Procedure for determining Fees for Custom Units

Murdoch University offers the opportunity to include individually tailored studies in many of its Coursework degrees.  This might take the form of an Independent Study Contract (ISC) in an undergraduate degree, or may comprise the entire content of an Honours degree. 

In addition, from time to time a “Special Topic” unit may be offered at short notice, to respond to a topical issue or to take advantage of a visiting Academic’s expertise.

This statement describes the procedures used to make these Custom Units available for enrolment, and how the applicable fee rates can be determined.

Higher Education Support Act

In 2003 the Commonwealth Government introduced the Higher Education Support Act. These reforms have changed the way that students contribute to the costs of their education and how they can access Commonwealth assistance.

Further information regarding the Higher Education Support Act reforms can be found at the Commonwealth Government's 'Study Assist' web site: http://studyassist.gov.au/sites/StudyAssist/.

In general terms, Australian citizens and holders of Humanitarian Permanent Resident visas, who are enrolled in a course leading to an award, are able to defer the fee to SA-HELP. This scheme is separate from HECS-HELP and FEE-HELP, and requires that students submit a separate SA-HELP form. The form is available in MyInfo in the Enrolment Steps or Fees sections.
