Calculation of Fees
The tuition fees shown represent full-time study over the period indicated. Actual tuition fees are calculated on a per unit basis, and variation to a normal full-time course load will result in a pro-rata adjustment to tuition fees. Tuition fees may rise each year. This fee schedule should be read in conjunction with Curtin College's published refund policy. International students who study in Australia under the provision of a student visa must maintain a full-time study load
Tuition fees are payable in advance prior to the commencement of a study period. A levy may be payable if fees are not paid by the due date. Students can only re-enrol if the tuition fees have been paid. Students repeating a failed unit have to pay tuition fees for that unit again.
Fees are payable before each trimester (or semester). Students pay the rate applicable for that academic year and not the rate of the year in which they began their course. Please note that fees are subject to an annual review. Tuition fees do not include textbooks, stationery or OSHC charges. An ancillary fee or additional separate charge may apply to particular units (e.g. uniform, lab coat, etc.).
