The student tuition fees are indicative only and are subject to change given individual circumstances at enrolment. Additional fees may apply such as student service and resource fees.

Nominal hours are not hours of training or instruction. They are used to determine course fees and subsidy levels to reflect the cost to deliver quality training. Course fees may vary depending on the elective unit election.

Concession and annual course fee caps may also apply to some courses. Fee caps apply to some tuition fees only. Note: Proof of eligibility for concession must be demonstrated prior to the commencement of the unit. If the concession is valid for the full enrolment period, then all eligible units commenced within that period attract the concession rate. If the concession is valid for part of the enrolment period, then only eligible units commenced prior to the expiry of the concession attract the concession rate.
