Tuition fees and course costs for international students in Australia
The average tuition fee for international undergraduate students was AU$29,235 (~US$23,400) per year in 2017.
Tuition fees at Australian universities are generally calculated per unit, not per year. Each unit falls into a fee band, and as most students will be studying a combination of units from different bands, fees will be different for everybody.
Some universities in Australia publish official fees estimates, including Australian National University (ANU), which is the nation’s highest-ranked institution (20th in the QS World University Rankings® 2018). The yearly cost of an international undergraduate degree from ANU ranges from AU$32,640 (~US$26,135) for some Bachelor of Arts programs, up to AU$43,632 (~US$34,900) for Bachelor of Science or Medical Science programs.
For graduate degree programs, annual fees start from AU$32,640 (~US$26,100) for a few master’s programs and reach up to AU$43,632 (~US$34,900).
