International tuition fee refunds

Fee refund percentages and dates for international students

  • 90% refund is payable if the student withdraws from unit(s) at least 4 weeks prior to start of teaching period;
  • 50% refund is payable if the student withdraws between 4 weeks prior to the start of teaching period and the census date of the relevant unit(s); and
  • no refund is payable if the student withdraws after census date

For those withdrawing having not paid their fees-
