Fee tables and calculations

Every undergraduate subject has a study load and has been assigned to one of the discipline fee bands shown in the table below (so has a subject fee). Most undergraduate courses require students to enrol in subjects from more than one discipline fee band for a total study load across all subjects of 100 credit points per year.

The cost of your course will be the total of the tuition fees for each subject in which you enrol, with the cost of each subject determined by its discipline fee band and its study load.

The Handbook lists all the subjects you can take in your course and their corresponding subject codes.

For detailed information about how fees are calculated, see the Terms and conditions.


International undergraduate subject fees

Undergraduate subjects are grouped into discipline fee bands. These fee bands are determined by the content of the subject, not the course, nor the faculty or school that teaches it. You will be charged the sum of the fees for all subjects in which you enrol. Most undergraduate courses require students to enrol in subjects from more than one discipline fee band for a total study load across all subjects of 100 credit points (1 EFTSL) per year.

To date fees have been set for 2018 and these are shown in the tables below. The subject fees in the tables form the basis for calculating your tuition fees but do not necessarily represent the fees for a typical enrolment. The fees are for each 100 credit points of study in that discipline fee band. You can use the amounts to work out your tuition fees for each year.

Working it out - an example fee calculation

Wei is an international student who enrols in a Bachelor of Science in 2018, commencing in Semester 1. She enrols in 8 subjects for a total of 100 credit points (1 EFTSL), or a standard full-time study load for one year of study:

  • 2 Commerce subjects (12.5 credit points each)
  • 2 Maths subjects (12.5 credit points each)
  • 4 Science subjects (12.5 credit points each)

In this example, the subject fees in 2018 are: $41,120/EFTSL for Commerce; $38,976/EFSTL for Mathematics; $41,312/EFTSL for Science.

Wei’s tuition fees for 2017 are calculated as:

(2 x 0.125 x $41,120) : 2 Commerce subjects
+ (2 x 0.125 x $38,976) : 2 Maths subjects
+ (4 x 0.125 x $41,312) : 4 Science subjects
$40,680  

Estimated course fees for international students commencing in 2018

The fees below provide an estimate of the course tuition fees for international students commencing an undergraduate course in 2018. As far as possible, the fees provided in this table show the typical tuition fees that a student will pay for the first year of the course. As a guide, a typical total course fee is also shown.

For most courses the typical tuition fees are based on subject enrolments normally undertaken by students in the course, and reflect the discipline band of the subjects comprising the degree. For some degrees, a typical fee range is shown due to the wide range of variables that may affect the course structure and subjects taken.

Please note that:

  • The fees provided are indicative only and may vary depending on the number of subjects undertaken, their credit point value and the discipline band for each subject undertaken during your enrolment.
  • The typical course fee shown provides an estimate of the tuition fees for the first year of the course in 2018. This estimate assumes a full-time study load, commencing semester one.
  • The typical total course fee shown provides an estimate of the tuition fees for the whole course. This estimate is based on typical subject enrolments in each year of the course, with indexation of the 2018 international undergraduate subject fees at five per cent per annum for every additional year of study after 2018 (for students commencing in 2018), and indexation of the 2019 international undergraduate subject fees at five per cent per annum for every additional year of study after 2019 (for students commencing in 2019). The amount shown assumes students complete no more than the course duration indicated.
