Tuition Fees

Tuition fees are in Australian dollars. Annual fees are based on enrolment in eight subjects per year. If a student chooses to enrol in more than eight subjects per year, the tuition fees payable will increase pro rata according to the number of subjects in which they are enrolled. Fees quoted for the PQP programs are for four subjects, which is the total number of subjects that have to be completed in these courses.

All three trimesters are compulsory enrolment periods for students who are studying while on a student visa.  A trimester is approximately four months long.

If you have any concerns or questions regarding your fees, please email: finance@jcub.edu.au

1. Tuition Fees and Commencement Deposits

1.1 Tuition Fee Liability

1.1.1    International tuition fees are set for each calendar year and are quoted either for a single Study Period/Trimester or at an annual rate. The tuition fee liability is calculated in proportion with the credit point enrolment for coursework and time-based study for research students.

For coursework students, tuition fees are charged pro-rata of the annual course fee based on 24 credit points.

1.1.2 International Tuition fees are subject to annual increases as approved by the Vice Chancellor.

1.1.3 The tuition fee liability incurred by students who commence their course from 1 January 2017 will be the approved course fee for each year in which the student is enrolled.

The tuition fee liability incurred by Continuing Students who commenced their course prior to 1 January 2017 is subject to increase at a rate indexed annually based on the course fee for the year in which the student commenced studying.

1.1.4    A tuition fee liability will be incurred for all subjects in which a student is enrolled in at Census Date.  Withdrawal from any subject(s) or course after the Census Date does not reduce the fee liability due unless exceptional circumstances apply as per Clause 3.3.

1.1.5    For Continuing Students, tuition fees must be paid in full by the applicable Payment Due Dates.

1.1.6    Where bank fees are deducted from any amount paid, the student must pay the bank fees so that the University receives the full tuition fee amount.

Please refer to the Tuition Fee Policy for further information.


Student Services and Amenities Fee

In October 2011, the Australian Parliament passed legislation allowing universities to charge a student services and amenities fee. The income from the fee is used to provide a range of student support services and facilities including:

  • Support for student organisations including sporting activities
  • Student spaces
  • Student Orientation
  • Student counselling
  • Study skills support
  • Student advocacy

In 2019, students will pay $45.45 per 3 credit points to a maximum of $303.00 per calendar year.  The SSA Fee is indexed annually.

Payment of the SSA Fee is compulsory for all JCU Brisbane students.

Like your subject fees, you must pay your SSA Fee by the Payment Due Date of each subject.

  • Credit card payments can be made on campus at Student Services, student ID must be presented.
  • You can also make a Direct Deposit (online transfer) if you have internet banking. You must use your student ID number as a reference. This will ensure that Finance can identify the payment and allocate the amount to your My Finance account.

JCU Brisbane is committed to seeking input from students regarding priorities for expenditure of the SSA Fee revenue. JCU Brisbane consults with the student council representatives and the student body regarding the use of the SSA Fee revenue in a future year. Each year JCU Brisbane publishes proposed priorities for expenditure and invites student feedback.
