Scholarships and Fees

Domestic Postgraduate Coursework Students

Students studying postgraduate coursework programs at UNSW may receive a Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP) or be required to pay the full cost of tuition (tuition fee place). See the Fees Home Page for full information about fees at UNSW.

Commonwealth Supported Places

 A Commonwealth Supported Place is a higher education place for which the Commonwealth Government makes a contribution towards the cost of your education. Students pay a Student Contribution amount which is charged per unit of credit (UOC). This rate varies depending on the Commonwealth band classification of the courses undertaken. See UNSW Fees for rates and further information.

Commonwealth Supported Places will be offered by the School on a competitive basis following the application and selection process. Applicants who are offered and accept a Commonwealth Supported Place are required to complete the Request for Commonwealth Support and HECS-HELP form as part of the online enrolment process.
