What to Pay

What to Pay

The information and tables below outlines the approximate fees that a student will incur for their semester enrolment into a unit of study in the year indicated. It is possible, however, for students to undertake units from other providers towards completion of a postgraduate program, in which case the unit fees may vary. Please note all fees are reviewed annually as per the Policy on Student Unit Fees and Policy on Student Administrative Fees. Fees are subject to change. All fees for the following calendar year will be listed on this page in October each year.   

Semester Unit Fees

Full-Fee Place

Units undertaken in CPEE programs are full fee paying and are not eligible for Commonwealth support or FEE-HELP. If you are a domestic student in a Full Fee Paying place you must pay full tuition fees for your studies.

Note - 

  • Your unit fee is payable by the issued invoice due date or the Semester Orientation date, whichever occurs first. 
  • If your unit fee has still not been paid after the relevant census date, you will incur a financial liability for the debt and access to the CPEELMS removed.

How do I determine my student unit fees?


You are considered a DOMESTIC student if you are:

  • a citizen of Australia;
  • a citizen of New Zealand
  • a dual citizen of Australia and any other country;
  • a Permanent Resident of Australia; or
  • on a Permanent Humanitarian Visa.

These criteria apply even if you completed your schooling outside Australia.

Dual Citizenship

If you have Australian or New Zealand citizenship and citizenship of another country, you are considered to be a Domestic student – even if you completed your schooling outside Australia.


You are considered an INTERNATIONAL student if you are:

  • a citizen of any country except Australia or New Zealand;
  • a temporary resident (visa status) of Australia;
  • a permanent resident (visa status) of New Zealand.


Semester unit fees will be invoiced to you automatically once you have enrolled in the unit/s you wish to study. If you have not received your invoice within 2 weeks of submitting your semester enrolment please contact CPEE directly.
