Indicative Fees

Domestic students

Domestic research students are not required to pay tuition fees as they are enrolled under the Research Training Scheme. The RTS provides funding for a doctoral research program for a minimum of 3 years, up to a maximum of 4 years.

International students

Annual indicative fees for international students in 2020 were A$46,080. International students are required to pay International Student Fees (ISF) unless these are covered by a scholarship.



Domestic students (i.e. citizens of Australia and New Zealand and permanent residents of Australia) are eligible for an Australian Government Research Training Program (AGRTP) Stipend Scholarship. The AGRTP is funded by the Commonwealth government and provides support to students completing a research degree program.

The AGRTP International Fee Offset Scholarship provides support for a research program up to a maximum of four years for a PhD program (or part-time equivalent). Most RegNet students are successful in obtaining scholarships to fully or partially fund their study in Canberra. AGRTP and AGRTP International Fee Offset Scholarship applicants are very competitive. Thus, international students should consider applying to other eligible schemes, such as the Australia Awards Scholarships.

If you enrol in additional subjects/courses during your enrolment you may incur tuition fees.
