Study costs

How much does studying at uni cost?

All domestic undergraduate places at UOW are Commonwealth Supported Places. On average, the Australian Government contributes up to 75% of the total tuition fee for CSP students. Students are responsible for the balance of the fees. This is known as 'student contribution'.

You can find a detailed explanation of student contributions on the UOW fees information page.

Deferring payments while at uni

HECS-HELP is a loan scheme that allows students to defer paying their student contribution until a government determined income threshold is met. The fees are repaid through the Australian Tax Office once income reaches a minimum amount. For the 2018-2019 income year, the threshold is $51,957.

This loan scheme is available to all Australian citizens and holders of permanent humanitarian visas who are enrolled in a Commonwealth Supported Place. Detailed information can be found on the Australian Government’s Study Assist web site.
