Domestic students

Domestic students who are admitted to a higher degree by research program are exempt from tuition fees under the Research Training Scheme. However, textbooks, personal study materials and some support services incur additional costs.

International students

Continuing international students are liable to pay an annual tuition fee that covers a calendar year. The invoicing periods for tuition fees are:

  • Semester 1 (1 January to 30 June)
  • Semester 2 (1 July to 31 December)

The tuition fee must be paid each semester by the census date.


Tuition fee refunds

A student who withdraws from candidature or submits a thesis may apply for a partial refund of tuition fees for that semester, calculated on a pro-rata basis. The calculation will be based on the enrolment status of the student on the 15th day of the month. If withdrawal or submission occurs on or before the 15th of the month, there is no tuition fee liability for that month. If withdrawal or submission occurs on or after the 16th day of the month, tuition fees will be charged for that month.
