Fees for Australian and New Zealand students
What is a Commonwealth supported place (CSP)? -
A CSP is subsidised by the Australian Government. They pay part of the course fees directly to Curtin and then the
student pays the remainder. The student can defer this fee to their HECS-HELP loan.
All Australian students studying an undergraduate degree are automatically awarded a Commonwealth supported place.
Learn more about CSPs and whether you're eligible by visiting the Australian Government's StudyAssist website.
Fees are indicative first year only.
*The indicative first-year fee is calculated on 200 credit points, which is the typical full-time study load per year, however some courses require additional study to be completed, in which case the fee will be higher than that shown.
This fee is a guide only. It may vary depending on the units you choose and do not include incidental fees (such as lab coats or art supplies) or the cost of your textbooks - visit other fees and charges for more information. For more information on fees and to determine your eligibility for HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP, please visit fee basics or the Study Assist website
If you're not an Australian citizen, permanent resident or New Zealand citizen, please see information for international students.
