Tuition fees

Domestic students

Domestic students who are offered entry to a graduate research degree will have the cost of their tuition fees covered by the Australian Government’s Research Training Program (RTP) Fees Offset Scholarship. If you are granted an RTP Fee Offset Scholarship you are not required to pay tuition fees for up to the maximum period of time allowable to complete your study*. 

  • Doctoral degree 4 years full time or 8 years part time
  • Masters by Research degree 2 years full time or 4 years part time

To be eligible to receive an RTP Fee Offset, a domestic applicant must be:

  • an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or a New Zealand citizen; and
  • commencing or enrolled in a graduate research degree (for which RTP support is available) at UTS; and
  • within the maximum candidature period*; and
  • not receiving an equivalent award or scholarship from the Commonwealth Government that is designed to offset research course tuition fees.

*A student's maximum period of RTP Scholarship support is based on the student's HDR course commencement date (which may or may not have occurred at a previous university and may or may not have been supported through the RTP).  If you have studied, but not completed, a Higher Degree by Research at UTS or another institution please contact Graduate Research School to confirm your remaining EFTSL at UTS and when you will become liable for the overtime fee.

Tuition fees and RTP load for postgraduate research degrees are charged on a pro-rata basis, based on the number of days you are enrolled in each research degree session and whether you are enrolled after the research census date.
