Master of Social Policy
Social policy makers weave the fabric of our society. They meld the needs of citizens with the roles of government and not-for-profit service agencies in the areas of employment, income support, education, health and climate change. The Master of Social Policy offers a curriculum that reflects cutting-edge developments in these key areas of social policy. Graduates will be equipped to understand the respective roles of government, private and not-for-profit sectors in meeting the needs of citizens. The Master of Social Policy has a global focus when exploring social dimensions such as race, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, disability and age. Contemporary social issues will be analysed and students must balance the competing forces of social policy and the economy

Commonwealth Supported Places
A CSP is subsidised and students pay a contribution determined by the Australian Government. The number of CSPs available is reviewed annually by the University.
Australian Fee Places
If you are not eligible to receive a CSP, you will automatically be considered for an AF place if you meet course entry requirements. AF places are not subsidised but you may be eligible for assistance with the FEE-HELP loan scheme. If this course is relevant to your current employment, you may be able to claim fees as a work-related tax deduction.
Course fees are calculated as if a student undertakes one year of full-time study. This is called 1 x EFTSL (Equivalent Full Time Study Load). If course duration is less than one year, or the student studies less than a full-time study load, fees are adjusted accordingly.
The indicative total course fee is based on typical subject enrolments and does not take into account any advanced standing for prior studies.
Fees are reviewed annually by the University and vary depending on subjects within the course.
If you have completed post-secondary study, you may be eligible for credit/advanced standing towards your studies at the University. Find out more.
