If you're studying in more than one faculty area (double degree), check both the relevant single degrees for additional costs.

For more information, contact HiQ or the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.
Our Executive Master of Business Administration (GS50) includes a two-week international study tour. This costs approximately $7,500 and includes flights, all in-country transportation, accommodation, company and site visits, and most meals.

If you're a design student, you may need to pay for art materials and some drawing materials.
All courses that have dealings with construction sites must complete the General Safety Induction Course (Construction Industry) in order to obtain a construction white card. These courses include:
Material costs for independent studio work, data storage.
Students buying a laptop are advised to buy a MacBook or MacBook Pro.
You may have to pay extra costs (for example travel and accommodation) if your course requires off-campus activities such as:
Students undertaking professional experience will need to reduce working commitments during this period in order to maintain the required full-time attendance and related planning activities.
If you study an initial teacher education course (undergraduate and postgraduate) at QUT, i.e. Bachelor of Education, Graduate Diploma in Education or Master of Teaching course, you must pass a national Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education Students before you complete your course. The test will assess your personal literacy and numeracy skills.
QUT provides you with one reimbursement to cover the cost of the test but won't pay for any administration charges you incur if you don't sit your test.
For Queensland and international professional experience placements, you need a blue card. This involves a criminal history check so that you can undertake professional experience in a school or site, or activities in any unit which may involve contact with children or young people (under the age of 18).
As a QUT student, you can apply for a blue card through QUT for free. Submit your blue card application to HiQ as soon as you've received your offer. To be eligible to start your placement, you must submit your blue card application, renewal or linking form to HiQ at least 10 weeks before the start of professional experience.
If you don't receive your blue card (or link your existing valid card to QUT) before the start of professional experience or a unit where you'll be working with children, you may not be able to participate and your grades may be affected. You may also be liable to pay fees for the unit.
For placements in other Australian states and territories, you must fulfill that state's or territory's requirements for working with children and provide the Professional Experience Office with a copy.
Students in all Faculty of Health courses (including double degrees) who are required to undertake placements off-campus may have additional costs, such as:
