Fees
Most domestic postgraduate coursework and non-award students at ANU must pay domestic tuition fees. The amount you have to
pay is based on the courses in which you enrol.
Each course has a set fee, so you will be invoiced for the total fees for all the courses you enrol in for a semester or session.
You can defer part or all of your tuition fees using FEE-HELP if you meet these citizenship and residency requirements:*
     >> You are an Australian citizen or permanent humanitarian visa holder (living in Australia for the duration of your enrolment).
     >> You are a permanent visa holder undertaking bridging study for overseas-trained professionals, and will be living in Australia for
     the duration of your enrolment.
If you use FEE-HELP, the Australian Government will pay your tuition fees while you study, but you will be required to pay back those
fees through the taxation system or voluntary payments. studyassist.gov.au/help-loans
A small number of postgraduate programs offer Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP)* where the Australian Government
subsidises your tuition fees. For information about CSPs see anu.edu.au/students/scholarships-fees/fees-payments/ postgraduate-
commonwealth-supported-places
Please follow the links in programsandcourses.anu.edu.au where specific fees for international students are listed by your degree.

Services and amenities fee
Domestic and international students at ANU must pay a services and amenities fee. This helps to support services like student
counselling, recreational facilities, sporting and cultural events held on campus throughout the year. anu.edu.au/pg/ssaf
