Tuition Fees: Arts & Social Sciences International 2018

Amounts are per unit of credit (UOC). Students are charged based on their student status (domestic or international) and the classification of the course (undergraduate, postgraduate or research), also known as the course career or study level of the course. To calculate the fee for a course refer to the course prefix (e.g. POLS) and the course classification (e.g. Postgraduate), then multiply by the UOC value of the course, available from the Handbook.

Example: An international postgraduate student is enrolling in a Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences course, POLS5120, which has a value of 6 UOC and the course is classified as postgraduate. The fee for this course will be $695 x 6 = $4170.00.

About courses

A course is defined by the Academic Board as

'a component of an academic program, normally of one term or semester in duration, with a specific credit value' . Each approved course of the University is identified by a sequence of eight characters, consisting of a four character alphabetical prefix which identifies the organisational unit responsible for administering the course, and a four digit numeric suffix which identifies the course. Each course has a unit of credit value defined.

Course identifiers are approved by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor Academic and the system of allocation is based on the following guidelines:
1.  A four character alphabetical prefix is used to indicate the subject area. This usually correlates with the authority offering the course (normally a School of the University), but in some cases identifies subject specialisations or cross-disciplinary subject areas.
2. Each course identifier is unique and is not used for more than one course title.

Courses offered are listed and described in the Handbook. The subject areas and organisational units for each identifying alphabetical prefix are also described in the Specialisations section of the Handbook.
