Course tuition fees
The amount you pay for your course, as well as any fee assistance you may be eligible to receive, depends on your chosen study level and residency status (whether you are a domestic or international student).
Course fees for TAFE students vary depending on a number of factors. For more information, visit the Victoria Polytechnic website.
Domestic students undertaking undergraduate or postgraduate (by coursework) degrees are generally either Commonwealth Supported or Full-Fee Paying. Maximum fees are set each year for a full time study load, and may need to be paid up-front or (if eligible) deferred as a loan to be repaid later.
Domestic Higher Degree by Research (HDR) students may be eligible to receive a Research Training Scheme (RTS) funded place to cover the cost of study.
