All students pay tuition fees and compulsory levies. Calculate how much your courses will cost.

When to pay your fees

Your enrolment is confirmed—and you are liable for (required to pay) your fees—once you’ve signed and returned one of:

  • an Enrolment Agreement
  • a Change of Course form
  • a document formally agreeing that you accepted an offer of a place on a course.


If you withdraw from your course(s) before the applicable course change deadline, you will be eligible to apply for a refund.

Find out more about refunds on the course additions and withdrawals page

An administration charge may apply.

Other costs and levies

The Student Services Levy and the Student Assistance Levy are compulsory fees for all students. They fund services for students that are not covered by tuition fees and assist students suffering exceptional financial hardship.

From 2024, these levies will be renamed the Student Services Fee and the Student Hardship Fee, respectively.

Some courses have additional costs for items such as study materials, equipment, or field trips. These additional costs are typically described in the online course outline —use the course finder to look up individual courses.

The University may charge you a fee to cover the cost of administrative tasks such as replacing your student ID card, refunding credit, or processing a late payment.
