The fee is based on the study load that the student is taking. Fees are paid on a per subject basis each term, and total course fees are not required to be paid up-front.

The fees listed are the indicative costs for 2017. The University reviews fees annually. The indicative total course fee is based on typical subject enrolments, and includes an indexation of 5 per cent per annum.

Financial assistance and scholarships

The fees you pay for graduate study will vary depending on the type of enrolment or place you are offered.

If you are an Australian Citizen or Permanent Humanitarian Visa holder, you may be eligible for financial assistance from the Australian Government. You may be eligible for the government loan scheme known as FEE-HELP, which isn’t normally the case for leadership and executive programs.

There are many subsidies and scholarships awarded by the University and specific faculties, based on a variety of criteria. Online students are encouraged to apply.

  • FEE-HELP

    FEE-HELP is a loan available to eligible students in domestic fee-paying places to help pay for all or part of their tuition fees. The Commonwealth Government sets limits on how much you can borrow. FEE-HELP loans are repaid through the taxation system. No loan fee applies to loans for postgraduate studies. Detailed information about eligibility for FEE-HELP is available from the Study Assist website.

  • Domestic scholarships

    The Melbourne Scholarships Program is one of the most generous and comprehensive in Australia – supporting approximately 3000 students at the University. The scholarships program serves to both reward outstanding academic achievement and provide access for students who might otherwise be prevented from undertaking further study. For full details of all domestic graduate scholarships, visit the Future Students website.

    Further information regarding financial aid options for current students is available on the Student Services website.

  • International scholarships

    There are no scholarships available for overseas online students from the University of Melbourne. Companies, home universities, professional organisations and charities may provide scholarships.
