An International student is someone who is NOT:
- an Australian or New Zealand citizen
- or a person who has Australian permanent resident status.
Calculating your tuition fees
As an international student in a fee-paying place you are required to pay tuition fees.
If you commenced your program from 1 January 2014, you will be charged tuition fees according to the approved program fee for the trimester in which you are studying. The date your application was received by the university may also be a determining factor.
If you commenced your program pre-2014, you will be charged tuition fees according to the approved program fee for the semester in which you commenced your program.
Program fees can be found on Programs and courses.
How to calculate your 2017 tuition fees if you:
- commenced your program in 2017, and your application was received after the 30 April 2015
- commenced your program in 2016, and your application was received after the 30 April 2015
- commenced your program in 2014 or 2015; or commenced your program in 2016 or 2017, and your application was received by 30 April 2015
- commenced your program prior to 2014
Changing your residency status
What happens if you change your residency status?
If, after commencing study in the program, you obtain permanent resident status in Australia and can provide evidence of permanent resident status prior to the census date (of the trimester in which you are enrolled), you will be allocated a non-International fee-paying place.
You may then apply for a Commonwealth supported place at the next admission period provided that you satisfy the relevant conditions. Please see the Fees and charges policy for information in relation to International students obtaining permanent residency status in Australia.
