Note: From 1 July 2019 to 31 July 2019, the UTS 2020 Undergraduate and Postgraduate international course guides published on the Brochure downloads page of this website displayed fees for 2019 rather than 2020. The correct fees for 2020 were set out in the back of the guides in the Course Summary Tables. This error has now been rectified and the course guides show the correct fees. All students commencing in 2020 will be charged the 2020 fees.
Tuition fees for international students vary between courses, and from year to year, and must be paid in advance each session.
In addition to tuition fees, students may be required to pay a Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF). Textbooks and other course materials will also result in additional costs.
International students commencing study in 2020
As a commencing international student you will pay the tuition fees set for your course for the year in which you commence study.

International students continuing study in 2020
