Domestic student fees

We calculate your fees by multiplying the:

  • study load for a subject (based on 120 credit points a year for a full study load), by the
  • subject's contribution rate (depends on its band and the year you started your course).

We then round down to the nearest $1.


If the study load for a subject is 0.125 and its contribution rate is $8,021:

0.125 x $8,021 = $1002.625 rounded down to $1002.00

New fee structures for Commonwealth-supported students from January 2021

On 19 October 2020, the Job-ready Graduates Package passed in parliament. The package includes changes to Commonwealth-supported student contribution amounts (see Table 1 below), and provides some opportunities for students in regional Australia.

As advised by the Australian government, the new contribution amounts take effect in the 2021 academic year. 'Grandfathering' arrangements are in place for students who would see an increase in their contribution amounts. Under these arrangements, students who started their course before 1 January 2021, will have their student contribution amount remain as they were under the previous arrangements (with existing rates being indexed by CPI each year); see Table 2. If you are enrolled in units that will see your student contribution amount lowered, your student contributions will be lowered in line with the 2021 figures. Note that 'grandfathering' does not apply to students who deferred their studies before 1 January 2021.
