Students can also choose to pay a portion of their subject fees themselves and the remaining portion using FEE-HELP (if eligible). Please note that the above subject fees are current for this calendar year and are reviewed and changed at the Institute's discretion for future semesters.

 

FEE-HELP is available for eligible students to pay their tuition (subject) fees. You can find out more about Fee Help from the following publication: Fee Help Information – 2014. The Request for FEE-HELP Assistance form to apply for FEE-HELP will be provided to you upon being offered a place in the course or, for current students, with your semester enrolment information.
