If you have a Commonwealth Supported Place, the Australian Government pays part of your course fees and you pay the rest. The part you pay is called the 'student contribution amount'. Student contribution amounts vary each year and depend on the courses you choose.
You may be eligible for a Higher Education Loan Program (HELP) loan to cover your student contribution amount.
Full-fee paying students
If you’re enrolled as a full-fee paying student at your home university, you will need to pay tuition fees to UQ for each course you enrol in.
Tuition fees may be different for each course and increase annually.
To help estimate your costs, check our unit of study schedules for domestic fee-paying undergraduate students or domestic postgraduate coursework students.
Your fees are based on the courses you're enrolled in at the census date. This is the deadline to finalise your enrolment for each study period.
If you fail a course or withdraw from a course after the census date, you are still required to pay the tuition fee for that course. You must pay the fee even if you didn't attend classes or submit any assessment items.
If you correctly withdraw from the course by the census date, you won't have to pay the tuition fee or incur a debt for that course. If you had already paid your tuition fee, you can apply for a refund from UQ.
