How to apply
It’s easy to apply for a postgraduate coursework degree using our step-by-step guide. The process should only take about 20 minutes.
Your fees will depend on your course choice and placement offer. If your postgraduate coursework application is successful, you’ll likely be offered a domestic fee-paying place (DFP). A limited number of postgraduate coursework degrees have Commonwealth supported places (CSP) available.
If you’re an eligible domestic student with a domestic fee-paying offer, you will have the option to defer payment of all or part of your fees through the Higher Education Loan Program (HELP).
