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 and the year that you are enrolling in.

At Macquarie, the standard full time load for a MUIC Undergraduate Diploma Program 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.

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

Look up the band for the unit you are interested in the Student Contribution Band and Amount then look up the corresponding annual student contribution amount for that unit.

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

If you are an Australian citizen or eligible New Zealand citizen or permanent resident (humanitarian), as a commonwealth-supported student, you will be eligible for HECS-HELP.

If you are in an undergraduate domestic fee-paying place at your home institution, you will be allocated a domestic fee-paying place in Macquarie's undergraduate cross-institution program. If you are an Australian citizen or eligible New Zealand citizen or permanent resident (humanitarian), you will be eligible for FEE-HELP, providing you have not exceeded your FEE-HELP limit.
