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 are 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.

Your financial capacity

You must have access to sufficient funds to cover the full cost of your stay in Australia for the duration of your studies. Full cost includes tuition fees, study costs and living expenses. We can help you to estimate your full study cost and the cost of living in Brisbane.

Health cover

You must organise and pay for your Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) before you come to Australia.

Tuition fee increases

International tuition fees normally increase each year. Please read the international student fee and refund policy (PDF file, 65.71 KB) before you accept your offer.

  • the English language program tuition fees
  • $125 English language program registration fee
  • $3,000 deposit on your degree program
  • an optional $339 airport reception and accommodation placement fee.

Extra costs

Some courses have extra costs for things like field trips, equipment or practical training. See your course details for any additional costs.
