Question:

Have fees for science, maths and statistics units in Commonwealth Supported courses increased significantly in 2013?

Answer:

Legislation passed in 2012 resulted in significant increase in the cost of these units. The units were charged at Band 4 (National Priority) rate in 2012 and will now be mostly charged at the Band 2 rate. The Government requires each unit taught by the University to be placed in one of 4 Bands and the cost of each of unit is dependent on the Band. The band 2 rate for 2017 is approximately  $9,050. It is best to confirm which band your specific unit will be by going to the following website:
