Flexible payment options

Several government departments and agencies have a centrally funded pool of places for which you can apply directly for. Alternatively, you can apply with the financial support of your supervisor or another area of your department or agency. Departments and agencies now have the option to pay fees in full at course commencement or pay the unit cost at the commencement of each unit. Please contact us to find out if your agency provides central funding.

Students also have the option to pay their own fees, charged at the commencement of each unit. This independent payment facility is not offered to staff of the Northern Territory Government. Students who opt to pay their own fees may not have to pay anything upfront if they are eligible for a FEE-HELP loan. Note that employer authorisation to participate in the course is still required.
