How to pay your fees

International students can pay their fees by any of the following methods:

Health insurance

The Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) requires all international students (and their dependants) coming to Australia to study under a student visa and to have Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC).

Students need to have continuous OSHC for the duration of their stay in Australia. Failure to have continuous OSHC could result in their student visa being cancelled. Students must also make their first OSHC payment prior to being granted a student visa.

Some Norwegian and Swedish students may be covered by health insurance provided by their governments and do not need to have OSHC as a student visa condition. Check with Deakin International if you are unsure whether you fall under this category.

Fee refund policy

You are advised to be aware of DUELI's fee refund policy (92 KB), including conditions, methods of refund, transfer fees and attendance requirements.
