Postgraduate CSP courses

There's never been a better time to study, with fees heavily subsidised and HECS-HELP loans available for select postgraduate courses in 2024.

If you're enrolled in a Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP), the Government pays a portion of your fees, while the remainder is known as the ‘student contribution’ amount.

Your student contribution can then be paid up front or paid later through tax, when your income passes the repayment threshold.

Explore our subsidised postgrad courses

Postgraduate study is normally charged full fees, without access to government loan schemes.

The postgraduate courses listed here are government-subsidised, offering a significant saving for those looking to upskill.

Loans are also available, so you can study now, pay later through tax. Eligible students enrolled in a CSP may be able to get help paying their student contribution through the Higher Education Loan Program (HELP).
