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.
