Tuition Fee Calculator

Information on this page, including unit offerings, is from the 2017 academic year.

Student Type: Domestic - Research - commenced any year

Domestic Students enrolled in a Higher Degree Research course currently are not required to pay tuition fees as the cost of their course is covered under the Research Training Scheme (RTS). It is possible in the future that the RTS funding will not cover all Research students, at which time some students may be required to pay domestic full fees.

Please ignore any fee information presented in the Tuition Fee Calculator. Research students are expected to pay the Student Services and Amenities Fee.
