Tuition Fee Calculator

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

Student Type: Domestic - Graduate Coursework - Full fee paying - commenced before 2014

The cost of each unit of study depends on its discipline and the associated Field of Education. The Field of Education is the basis of Commonwealth Government funding for Commonwealth-supported students, and is therefore used by the University as the basis for determining tuition fees for domestic fee-paying students.

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 citizens and holders of a permanent humanitarian 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 There is a lifetime to the amount of FEE-HELP loan that a student can incur.
