Fee paying places

Most postgraduate students in Australia have a fee paying place in their course, and will pay the full cost of their tuition, however if you are a CSU Alumni Student, you will receive a 10% discount.

You can pay your fees by:

  • deferring your payment via a FEE-HELP loan through the Australian Government
  • making full payment directly to the University.

If there is a direct connection between your study and work you may be able to claim your tuition fees as a tax deduction. For further guidance please seek independent advice or visit www.ato.gov.au.

FEE-HELP loans at a glance:

  • defer part or all of your fees
  • only start repayments when you earn above the threshold set by the government
  • repay your loan through the taxation system.

You are eligible for FEE-HELP if you are:

  • be an Australian citizen, a New Zealand citizen holding a SCV who meets the eligibility criteria (refer to the StudyAssist FAQs NZ; OR
  • a permanent humanitarian visa holder who will be resident in Australia for the duration of your unit; OR
  • a permanent visa holder who is undertaking bridging study for overseas-trained professionals, and will be resident in Australia for the duration of the study.

FEE-HELP does not cover costs associated with accommodation, text books or any other expenses but will help you pay for the tuition fees.

Note: Domestic full fee paying undergraduate courses at CSU have been fully replaced by Commonwealth Supported Places in 2021. This means there is no fee paying undergraduate equivalent at this time.

In line with Australian Government's commitment to phase out domestic full fee paying undergraduate places in public universities, most undergraduate courses at CSU offer Commonwealth Supported Places.

Higher Degree by Research (HDR) funding

Domestic students who have a Research Training Program (RTP) place are funded by the Government. Research Training Program Scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis. Please see the CSU HDR Scholarships on offer. If you do not possess a scholarship that covers your tuition fees, you will be liable for tuition fees (see above for details).

RTP students are entitled to three years full-time equivalent study if undertaking an eligible Doctorate degree by research and a maximum of two years full-time equivalent study if undertaking a Masters degree by research. The maximum period of entitlement is calculated from the course commence date. RTP students may be eligible to apply for an extension of their scholarship.

Candidates who exceed their RTP entitlement are required to pay the appropriate domestic student tuition fee for their course.

At CSU, Higher Degree by Research (HDR) candidates are only required to be enrolled for sessions 1 and 2 to be considered enrolled for the whole year. One session at full-time is one-half year of RTP entitlement and one session at part-time is one-quarter year of RTP entitlement.
