What do you pay and what does it pay for?
Please note that the University reserves the right to vary student fees at any time during enrolment in line with relevant legislation.
Students that are currently enrolled will be given access to their Fee Statement on myUNSW at the beginning of semester. Your current liability is also displayed in the centre column of the myUNSW My Student Profile tab.
All tuition and related payments are due at the beginning of each semester (unless otherwise stated) and must be paid by the Due Date for Payment included on your fee statement.
The deposit paid by international students to secure their place at UNSW, will be held as a credit on the student’s account until the tuition fees are charged. The deposit will then be offset against the tuition fee.
You can choose to pay more than the required deposit as a voluntary upfront payment.
Under the Tuition Protection Service of the Education Services for Overseas Students Act 2000, if you choose to pay more than 50% of the total fees for your program upfront, you must formally notify UNSW by email at email@example.com to advise that this is a voluntary upfront payment, to be held in your student account.
Any voluntary upfront payments will remain on your account until the payments have been fully allocated to the tuition fees for your program. Any credit balances on your account will not be refunded until you either formally discontinue your studies, or you complete your program at UNSW.
UNSW cannot issue invoices for voluntary upfront tuition payments.
Here are the 2018 tuition fees by Faculty for International fee paying students. You can also use the Fee Estimator as a guide to help you understand your fee liability.
