Tuition fees

Exchange tuition fees

Exchange students do not pay tuition fees to Monash University. The tuition cost of participating in the exchange program is covered by the agreement between your home institution and Monash University.

Study Abroad tuition fees

If you're a Study Abroad student you will pay fees to Monash (or your home university/agent) for the units (subjects) you study while with us. Exchange students don't need pay any extra tuition fees, so it's a good idea to check if you fall into this category.

Tuition fees are charged for each semester you are enrolled. These fees are shown in the table below.

2019 - 2021

If you will be commencing your Study Abroad program at Monash in 2019, please note that all undergraduate and postgraduate units from all faculties will incur the same fees.

University-wide
(All Faculties)
$12,250$9,187.50

* These fee rates apply to all Australian campuses and are subject to change each year. If you will be studying at an international Monash campus (eg Malaysia) you should contact the relevant Monash Abroad office for current fee rates in the local currency.

If you pay fees to your home university or a study abroad representative you may be charged a different amount than what's described above. This can be because your home university or representative offers a package including additional items like accommodation, excursions, your Overseas Student Health Cover and transport.

International students enrolling in a CRICOS-registered course can study no more than 25% of their course by distance and/or online learning. Students cannot enrol exclusively in distance and/or online learning study in any compulsory study period. See standard 9.4 of The National Code 2007.

Cost of living

In addition to tuition fees, ensure you have reviewed information on the cost of living and additional expenses. Living in Australia can be expensive, so it’s a good idea to do your research and prepare a budget before you arrive. Your tuition and study fees do not include personal costs like accommodation, food, and other things you will need while in Australia.

You can learn more about the cost of living in Melbourne to help you prepare a budget. However, these figures are only estimates; costs will vary depending on your location and your lifestyle. Rent, for example, is more expensive in Melbourne than it is in a regional area. You may need to add other items to your budget, like ongoing mobile phone and internet fees. All costs are subject to inflation.
