Estimate Your Tuition

If you are already enrolled, you can estimate your tuition fee based on the courses (subjects) you are enrolled in. This fee estimate table (PDF, 16KB) may help you add up your individual course fees.

  1. Locate the course codes for the courses you are enrolled in. You can find your enrolment details by logging into myHub through myUoN, or check the requirements of your program in the degree finder under the handbook tab.
  2. The four letter abbreviation at the beginning of the course code shows the subject area of that course, for example, HIST for history. Every course within a subject area has the same fee.
  3. Look up the fee for each course code using the fee schedule for your level of study:
  4. 2017 International Undergraduate Fee Schedule
    2017 International Postgraduate Fee Schedule
    2017 International Research Higher Degree Fee Schedule

  5. Most courses have 10 units of academic credit. A full-time student usually takes 8 courses (80 units) per year or 4 courses (40 units) per semester/trimester.
  6. Add the fees for each course to get an estimate of your tuition fee.


If an international postgraduate student in 2017 were to take 3 courses in Mathematics (MATH), 2 courses in Philosophy (PHIL), 2 courses in History (HIST) and 1 course in Chemistry (CHEM) then he would calculate his fees as follows:

Course code
Fee per course
Number of courses
with the same code
B x C


$3,720.00 3 $11,160
PHIL $2,895.00 2 $5,790
HIST $2,895.00 2 $5,790
CHEM $4,535.00 1 $4,535.00
   TOTAL $27,275

In this example, all courses have a 10 unit value. If a course has a value other than 10, then the course fee would change in proportion to the unit value.

International student course fees are adjusted regularly and are subject to change in future years.

Billing and Payment

You will receive two bills - one for your tuition fee and one for your Student Services and Amenities Fee. International tuition fee bills are delivered in the week before each semester/trimester. If you enrol after this time, you will receive your bill in the week after your enrolment. We will send an email to your student account each time a bill is ready. Bills can be viewed and paid by logging into myHub through myUON [link].

Payment Plans

If you can't pay your tuition fees by the due date, you may be eligible to apply for a payment plan. Payment plans are only available if you're experiencing genuine and unexpected financial hardship. You will be required to pay half of your tuition fees by the due date, with the remaining amount divided into three monthly payments. All tuition fees must be paid in full by the end of the term. Submit an application for a payment plan (PDF 287KB) before the census date of the term the fees apply to. You can submit your application by emailing it from your student email account to our fees office.

If you accepted your offer but no longer plan to attend UON, find out about refunds of the international deposit fee.
