Tuition Fees

International students are charged up-front tuition fees. Institutions sometimes make an additional charge to cover other costs associated with being a student: student organisation membership, library and laboratory costs and sports facility costs. Some courses make specific charges for excursions, books, stationery and other essential material. These costs will vary depending on the course or institution therefore average costs are provided below and should only be used as a guide. All school tuition fees are exempt from Australia's Goods and Services Tax (GST).

Institutions will advise when to pay your tuition fees and acceptable methods of payment.
