3. Fees

UQ charges fees for cross-institutional enrolments. These fees are course-based and vary depending on whether you are a Commonwealth supported or fee-paying student.

Commonwealth supported places and student contributions

Commonwealth supported places are funded partly by the Australian Government (Commonwealth support) and partly by you (student contribution).

If you are enrolled as a Commonwealth supported student at your home institution, you may be eligible for a Commonwealth supported enrolment at UQ. You will need to provide evidence of current funding arrangements with your home institution when applying.

Tuition fees

If you’re enrolled as a full fee-paying student at your home institution, you will pay tuition fees based on the courses you undertake at UQ.

Tuition fees vary between courses and are indexed annually.

Calculating your fees

To help you estimate your course fees for a study period, UQ has an online fee calculator. If you identify the courses in which you intend to enrol, you can then estimate your course costs.

If you fail a course or withdraw from a course after the census date, you are still liable to pay the student contribution for that course, regardless of whether you attended any classes or handed in any assessment items. If you correctly withdraw from the course by the census date, you will not be liable to pay the cost or incur the debt for that course. If you had already made an up-front payment of your student contribution or tuition fee, you can apply for a refund from UQ.
