Fees

Did you know we have consistently been providing extra support to international students when it comes to tuition fees?

If you package your English course with an academic course, your English course will be free of charge. Additionally, our 2023 course fees will remain at 2022 rates, which means another saving of about 4% if you commence your study with us next year.

Our affordable course fees do not compromise the quality of education we provide or our graduate outcomes. In fact, CQUni graduates find employment fast and earn more than the national average (QILT ComparED 2021). 

Our affordable quality is further strengthened by the recent ISB survey result for value for money.

In the 2021 International Student Barometer, our students have told us they felt their current course is good value for money, placing us well above the Australian university average for this aspect of their student experience.

Fee Support

Our tuition fees are already comparatively affordable, but on top of that, we offer various means of financial support and incentive to help with your tuition fees such as our free English language courses for packaged students, scholarships and payment plan.

All students enrolling in a CQUEnglish packaged pathway with an academic or vocational course can study English for FREE. This offer is available for all three terms at all CQUEnglish Language Centres in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney.

No matter how many weeks you need, you can study your English course for free. This is a saving of thousands of dollars.

You may also be eligible for a 25% scholarship for your academic course, which provides even more savings. With a bit of pressure off financially, you can fully focus on your studies and making the most of your student experience.

CQUniversity-funded international student scholarships are valued at 25% of the course tuition fee. This 25% can definitely reduce some financial pressure. Below is an example of the cumulative savings for a two-year postgraduate course.

Imagine what you can do with this saving. Go on a holiday? Buy a car? Whatever it may be, if you're looking for affordable fees from a university with one of the best overall student experience and graduate employment outcomes in the country, then a CQUni qualification may just be right for you.

Example postgraduate courseYear 1Year 2
Estimated tuition fees (A$)$32 000$32 000
Scholarship (25% value)$8 000$8 000
Reduced tuition fees$24 000$24 000
Cumulative savings$8 000$16 000

Note: The above is only an example and does not factor in annual indexation.

Typically, students must pay the balance of the term fees by Census Date each term. Term dates can be found in our Academic Calendars.

In recognition of COVID-19 impacts, we have been offering payment plans for continuing students. There may be different plans available for different terms.

Please contact our Student Engagement team directly for more information.

Other costs

In addition to international course tuition fees, you must have sufficient funds to cover additional expenses such as textbooks, accommodation costs, Overseas Student Health Cover and general costs of living.

For more information regarding studying in Australia, visit the Study in Australia website, the official government site for international students.

I chose CQUniversity because of the affordable fee structure, scholarships, program structure, good infrastructure and facilities such as laboratories and student support. You can meet different cultural students and the lecturers are very helpful.
