At the time you accept your offer to study at Macquarie University, there are two payments you need to make:

1. Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)

Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) must be paid for the entire duration of your course. It must be paid before you start at Macquarie.

2. The Commencement Fee

The Commencement Fee is a portion of your tuition fee that you need to pay when you accept an offer to study at Macquarie University. The full cost will be listed on your offer letter. It is usually set at around AU$16,000. It must be paid before you start at Macquarie.

This Commencement Fee is taken off your first semester tuition fees (so it is not in addition to your tuition fees).
