Tuition Fee Calculator

Information on this page, including unit offerings, is from the 2020 academic year.

Student Type: Domestic - Undergraduate - Full fee paying - commenced any year

The University offers students the option of enrolling as a domestic tuition fee paying undergraduate student in most undergraduate courses - apart from Veterinary Science, Primary and Secondary Teacher Education, and Nursing. Currently-enrolled students can also choose to undertake individual units on a domestic fee-paying basis.

The cost of each unit of study depends on its funding cluster. The funding clusters are the basis of Commonwealth Government funding for Commonwealth-supported students, and are therefore used by the University as the basis for determining fees for domestic fee paying students.

As undergraduate courses at Murdoch typically offer students a wide range in their choice of units, it is difficult to provide an advance estimate of the annual or total cost of a course. For example, students enrolled in a business or science course frequently take units from the humanities funding cluster. It is also common for students enrolled in humanities courses to take units in the administration/commerce/economics and science funding clusters.

Note that the fees quoted within the Fees Calculator apply only to units studied in that year; different fees may apply to units studied in future years. Each year on 1 October the fees for the following year will be published.

Australian and New Zealand citizens and holders of a permanent visa are eligible to obtain a Federal Government income contingent loan to pay all or part of their tuition fees. This loan is known as FEE-HELP. Students who are requesting FEE-HELP assistance must complete a request for FEE-HELP Assistance form, and read the FEE-HELP booklet available online or in hard copy from The Student Centre. A loan fee of 20 percent is added in the FEE-HELP loan amount. There is a lifetime limit to the amount of FEE-HELP loan that a student can incur.
