Student contribution bands and amounts

Student contribution bands and amounts

Postgraduate student contribution bands

If you are a Commonwealth supported student you will be charged the student contribution amount for your unit enrolments according to the subject area of the unit. This is determined by the Unit Band and is dependent upon the year that you are enrolling into.

  • The subject area of the unit determines which Band is allocated to the unit - Band 1, Band 2 or Band 3.
  • Exchange Units are in the same band as their Macquarie counterpart.

The Credit Point Value, Student Contribution Band of your unit and the Annual Load of your course determine the amount you will be charged.
