The University of Newcastle, Australia

Fees and scholarships

While there are different types of fees depending on factors such as your citizenship status and area of study, they need to be paid by specified dates to ensure you are both properly enrolled and eligible to graduate.

To help stay on top of your University fees, a range of financial assistance options may be available, including scholarships and Government-provided loans.

It’s also worth planning ahead for expenses which generally aren’t included in your fees such as textbooks and course materials, as well as as SSAF fees.

You can view all your fees online, at myHub through myUON. To see what assistance the Australian Government may offer, head to the StudyAssist website.

More information

With different courses often charging different amounts, and the Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) variable depending on your circumstances, it can be difficult to keep track of exactly how much you owe in fees.

To help you better estimate your expenses, we have created a table that takes into account the cost of your courses, as well as your SSAF, to create an accurate picture of your annual fees.

You can estimate costs for later years as well, but keep in mind that course fees are adjusted annually.

Some of the language and jargon used around fees can be confusing, particularly for new students.

If you’re not entirely sure what the terms mean, you can always check them against our lists of common University jargon.

You can also ask for help online with ASKUON, or by calling Enquiries:
