Finding tuition fees
Want to find out the cost of a La Trobe course? Search for the course on our Find A Course page.
You’ll find the cost listed in the ‘Overview’ section of the course page next to the ‘Annual tuition fee (A$)’. This is the fee for the displayed year of the course listed in Australian dollars. If you can’t see this information, check that you’re viewing the version of the course page designed for international students.
Fees are based on a standard annual credit point load of 120 credit points per year unless it’s noted otherwise. If you change your study load your course fees will also change.
You can estimate the total cost for your course based on the listed annual fee, but please note that fees can change year-on-year. We reserve the right to vary fees on an annual basis – however, fees will not normally rise above 7 per cent per annum. If we do increase the tuition fees for a course, this increase will take effect on 1 January the following year.

Remember: you may be eligible for one of our wide range of generous scholarships. These scholarships can include significant reductions on tuition fees over the duration of your program. To learn more, visit our scholarships page

Student assistance schemes
The Australian Government offers the HECS-HELP and FEE-HELP loan schemes to help cover university fees. These fee assistance schemes can’t be used for other costs like accommodation or textbooks.
If you’re from overseas, you’re only eligible to access these fee assistance schemes if you hold an Australian Permanent Humanitarian Visa. If you’re in Australia on a student visa, or if you were in Australia on a student visa and you’ve obtained permanent residency, you won’t be able to access these schemes.
