How much will my course cost?

You have to pay fees for all our courses. You can get an idea of how much your course costs on your online course information, but your actual fees will vary depending on what units you enrol in.

Some courses may have extra costs for equipment, practical training and field trips.

Student services and amenities fee

Each semester, you’ll need to pay  student services and amenities (SA) fees. This fee is based on the units you’re enrolled in. The maximum fee for 2020 is $308.

SA fees go toward non-academic university services, like health and welfare, employment and career advice, and enriching campus culture.

International students don't have to pay SA fees.

You can pay your fees in a variety of different ways, including:

  • Flywire (telegraphic transfer)
  • online by credit card
  • BPAY
  • direct deposit
  • by phone
  • in person via Australia Post by:
    • credit card
    • EFTPOS
    • cash.
