Please note that the University reserves the right to vary student fees in line with relevant legislation. This fee information is provided as a guide and more specific information about fees, including fee policy, can be found on the fee website.
For advice about fees for courses with a fee displayed as "Not Applicable", including some Work Experience and UNSW Canberra at ADFA courses, please contact the relevant Faculty. Fees for courses delivered through UNSW Global are published and charged by UNSW Global and thus appear as "Not Applicable" on this site.
Where a Commonwealth Supported Students fee is displayed, it does not guarantee such places are available.
