I’ll always value how the trip opened my eyes to a foreign country and the ties with the people and culture I developed.

Course fees

For relevant fee information, are you a Local student or International student

All students at UTS pay tuition fees to contribute towards the cost of their studies.

In 2017 all offers made to domestic undergraduate students will be for Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP), which means that the Australian government makes a substantial contribution towards the cost of your education, and you pay the balance through student contributions.

The amount you pay depends on your area of study and the number of credit points (cp) in which you enrol. At UTS 48 credit points is considered to be one Equivalent Full Time Study Load (EFTSL).

The table to the right shows the amount a student can expect to pay for one year of full-time study (1.0 EFTSL).

Students can choose to pay their student contribution upfront, or if eligible, can defer their fees through HECS-HELP.

In addition to tuition fees, students are required to pay a Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF). The purchase of textbooks and other course materials may also result in additional cost.

You can calculate your student contribution as a percentage of the amounts shown on the table.
e.g. If you are enrolled in a 6 credit point Mathematics subject, your contribution would be 6/48 x $9,050 = $1,131.
