Fees and Scholarships

Fees and scholarships


LLM (Global Competition and Consumer Law)

100 point program


Course fees are the same for both domestic and international students.

Your course is equivalent in quality and accreditation to an on-campus qualification. Each subject is designed by academics, subject coordinators and learning designers to deliver an interactive and enriching experience, with regular contact from senior academics, teaching fellows and a dedicated online Student Support team.

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 above are for a 100 point (eight subject) course in 2018. For this course, a typical enrolment would be 50 points (ie four subjects per year) which means that the total fee for the year will be A$19,712. The University reviews fees annually. However, any increase in fee will not exceed 5 per cent per annum.

Fees are payable upfront for each subject. Should you require any assistance, please contact our Student Support team.

Financial assistance and scholarships

If you are an Australian Citizen or Permanent Humanitarian Visa holder, you may be eligible for financial assistance from the Australian Government. 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 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.

  • Scholarships

    To facilitate access to this premium course, ten scholarships per intake in 2017 and 2018 will be available for the LLM (Global Competition and Consumer Law) and Master of Global Competition and Consumer Law. These scholarships will be awarded to students from emerging and developing economies. Countries qualifying as emerging or developing economies are determined according to the International Monetary Fund and the United Nations. These countries are listed here. Being awarded one of these scholarships means that the scholarship holder, or his or her sponsoring employer, will only have to pay 50 per cent off the total course fee.

    A specific application is not required for a scholarship. All successful applicants will be reviewed for scholarship eligibility. Eligibility is determined based on proof of citizenship of one of the countries that are classified as qualifying as emerging or developing economies determined according to the International Monetary Fund and the United Nations. Applicants will also have to provide evidence that they have lived in their country of citizenship or another emerging or developing country for at least 12 months in the last 2 year period.

    The ten scholarships available per intake will be awarded in order of application date. If an eligible applicant does not receive a scholarship for his/her chosen intake (because the ten scholarships have been awarded), the applicant is able to apply for a scholarship in the next intake. Scholarships will be awarded for each intake based on the dates of applications made for that intake.

    Early application pricing is not available to students who receive scholarships. Scholarship holders are not able to defer the commencement of the course.

    Australia Awards Scholarships

    There are further scholarship opportunities available for students of the Global Competition and Consumer Law (GCCL) program. You may also be eligible for the Australia Awards Scholarships. These prestigious international Scholarships are funded by the Australian Government and are administered by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

    The Australia Awards Scholarships provide opportunities for people from developing countries, particularly those countries located in the Indo-Pacific region. The awards are designed for next generation global leaders to undertake study, research and professional development, with the aim of driving change and contributing to the development outcomes of their own country. Study programs must relate to your country’s priority areas for development. These are listed on the participating country profiles.

    There are several awards benefits such as funding of full tuition fees and contribution to living expenses.
