    Fee information

    The tuition fees you pay will depend on the units you choose to study as each unit has its own costs. The ‘Estimated tuition fee’ is provided as a guide only based on a typical enrolment of students undertaking the first year of this course. The cost will vary depending on the units you choose, your study load, the time it takes to complete your course and any approved Credit for Prior Learning you have.

    Each unit you enrol in has a credit point value. The ‘Estimated tuition fee’ is calculated by adding together 8 credit points of a typical combination of units for that course. Eight credit points is used as it represents a typical full-time enrolment load for a year.

    You can find the credit point value of each unit under the Unit Description by searching for the unit in the Handbook.

    The Australian Government recently announced proposed increases to tuition fees for students enrolled in a Commonwealth supported place (CSP).  It is proposed that CSP fees will increase by 1.8% in 2018 and continue to rise to a total of 7.5% by 2021. The fee rates for 2018 will be available later in the year once the Government has confirmed the 2018 student contribution rates.
