University tuition fees for international students in Australia vary by universities and programs. Below is a list of approximate tuition fees at OzTREKK’s Australian universities:
Study Abroad programs—$8,600 - $11,000 AUD per semester
Undergraduate programs—Starting at $15,000 AUD per year
Postgraduate programs—Starting at $20,000 AUD per year
Some programs, particularly professional programs, are considerably more expensive due to costs associated with laboratory work and/or the use of specialized equipment. Please refer to the specific "Programs" page for your area of interest to review the applicable tuition fees for your program of interest.
When you request information about a specific program from OzTREKK, we will provide you with the estimated tuition fees and administrative costs for your program. Additionally, OzTREKK will provide you with information about costs associated with the student visa application, health coverage and living in Australia.
For professional programs, such as medicine, law, physiotherapy, and teacher education, few scholarships are available to international students, chiefly because these programs are not research-oriented.
Each university has its own policy on how scholarships are awarded. OzTREKK links our students to in-depth information about applying for Australian university scholarships.
OzTREKK has a list of key scholarships available to students from Canada. When you submit your university application to OzTREKK, you’ll get access to this list, along with a great deal of other information, through our online Pre-departure and Admissions Centre.
