    Fee information

    The tuition fees you pay will depend on the type of fee place you hold. 

    • If you are enrolled in a Commonwealth supported place, your tuition fees are calculated depending on the units you choose.
    • If you are enrolled in a full fee paying place, your tuition fees are calculated depending on the course you choose.

    In both cases, the ‘Estimated tuition fee’ is provided as a guide only based on a typical enrolment of students completing the first year of this course. The cost will vary depending on the units you choose, your study load, the length of 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.
