  • student name
  • date of birth
  • course name

You are advised to make photocopies of all bank drafts/cheques and keep them as evidence of payment.

Is there an application fee?

What happens if I don't pay my fees on time?

If you do not pay your fees on time, you will not be able to enrol. Your application for a student visa may also be affected.

What if I cannot pay all my fees?

Unfortunately, all commencing students must pay their fees in full before they can be issued with an electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCOE). If you find that you are unable to pay your first trimester tuition fees in full, you may wish to consider deferring your offer until your circumstances change.
