Fees

You won’t pay tuition fees if you’re a domestic candidate (i.e. an Australian or New Zealand citizen, Australian permanent resident, or holder of an Australian permanent humanitarian visa) enrolling in an HDR program for the first time. These research training costs are met by the Australian Government under the Research Training Program.

If you’re an international candidate, you’ll be required to pay tuition fees for the duration of your HDR program.
