|Fee Category||Commonwealth Supported Place|
|What is a Commonwealth Supported Place?||A Commonwealth Supported Place is subsidised by the Government so that you are only required to pay a Student Contribution amount rather than tuition fees.|
|Am I eligible for a Commonwealth Supported Place?||
You are eligible to be Commonwealth supported if you are:
|Fee Type||Student Contribution|
|What is a Student contribution?||As a Commonwealth supported student, you will contribute towards the cost of your education by paying a Student Contribution. The Student Contribution is calculated for each term of enrolment based on the individual units you have enrolled in, not the course you are studying.|
|What is my Student Contribution?||
Your Student Contribution fee is charged per unit of study and is dependent on the Student Contribution Band for each unit. Student Contribution Bands are categorised by study disciplines and help provide an estimate of course fees.
The majority of units within this course fall within Band 2. Some units may fall within Band 1 and/or 3.
Student Contribution amounts for each band provide an estimate of the cost of your course. Your course may consist of units from more than one band so your fees could vary from the indicated amount as units are spread across a number of bands.
You can view fees specific to the course, and units, you are interested in studying by using our Cost Per Unit table.
|HECS-HELP and payment options||
HECS-HELP is the loan scheme provided the Australian Government to help eligible Commonwealth supported students pay their student contributions through a loan.
To be eligible for a HECS-HELP loan, in addition to being enrolled in a Commonwealth Supported Place, you must be:
Eligible students can use a HECS-HELP loan to pay for all or some of their Student Contribution amount. If you elect to use a HECS-HELP loan, this means that you will defer payment of your Student Contribution amount and repay your HECS-HELP loan when your income is above the compulsory repayment threshold (the 2018-2019 income year threshold is $51,957 or above).
If you are not eligible for a HECS-HELP loan, or you are required to pay your Student Contribution upfront, you will need to pay your fees no later than the census date for the term in which you are studying.
|Other Fees||You will also incur a Student Services and Amenities Fee.|
|Other study costs||You may have other study costs such as travel expenses related to residential schools or work placements if they are a requirement of your course. There are also textbooks, stationery and other sundry costs associated with studying. Incidental fees are applicable for clinical placement forfeiture and clinical placement supplementation if this occurs.|
