Step 4: Check costs and scholarships

Check your course details to see the fees for your course. International student fees only cover tuition.

Your tuition fees will depend on how many units you're enrolled in each semester. Check your course details to estimate what your fees will be.

Your offer letter will include:

  • the indicative tuition fees for a standard full time study period
  • an Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) quote.

You must organise and pay for your OSHC before you come to Australia.
