Postgraduate Courses 2020

2020 Postgraduate coursework degrees

If you are a Commonwealth Supported student (CSP) you will be charged the student contribution amount for your unit enrolments according to the subject area of the unit and the year that you are enrolling in.

At Macquarie, the standard full time load for all postgraduate courses is 80 credit points. This is equal to 1 EFTSL (Effective Full-time Student Load) and is used to calculate student contribution for a unit.

These courses are listed below.

How much does a unit of study cost?

Step 1

Check the Course Handbook and take a note of:

  • The Unit Code
  • The Credit Point value of the unit

Step 2

Go to the Student Contribution Band and Amount table (see below).

Look up the band for the unit you are interested in then look up the corresponding annual student contribution amount for that unit.

Step 3

The cost of a unit based on the most common credit point values are shown below.

You can also use your calculator to work it out as follows:

Unit Cost = (Credit points ÷ 80) × Annual Contribution Amount

From 2017, there is no discount if you pay all or part of your student contribution amount up front to the University before the relevant census date.

Example

The example below is rounded to the nearest dollar.

For courses that have limited CSP places, these places will be allocated on the basis of academic merit or equity. You may be offered a fee paying place instead.

Education and Nursing

For students who commence their course of study before 1 January 2010, the maximum annual student contribution amount that may be charged for Education and Nursing units is $5,348.

Students who started their course of study on or after 1 January 2010 are subject to the maximum student contribution amount specified in the above table.

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.

Student contribution bands for postgraduate units

The student contribution bands graduate and postgraduate units (600, 8000 and 9000 level) units offered at Macquarie University are listed in the tables below.
