Postgraduate fees

Postgraduate programs at Western Sydney University are either Commonwealth Supported or Domestic Fee Paying. You will need to check the Domestic Postgraduate Tuition Fee document below to see which category your program falls into. If there is an amount listed your program is Domestic Fee Paying, if CSP is listed your program is Commonwealth Supported.

Commonwealth Supported Students (CSP)

The Australian government provides Western Sydney University with a specified number of Commonwealth Supported Places to which they provide a financial contribution towards the costs of study. Each student holding a Commonwealth Supported Place must then pay the remainder of their study costs via their Student Contribution.

Eligible postgraduate students have the option to apply for a HELP loan prior to the census date. You will need to refer to the Commonwealth Supported Students webpage for all your fee information.

Domestic fee paying students (DFEE)

Fees are charged per subject according to the Western Sydney University approved fees schedule, and vary across awards and subjects. The fee schedule is revised each calendar year, and therefore fees may increase annually. The domestic postgraduate fee schedule is displayed below by School.

Please note that tuition fees do not include any other expenses associated with university study such as books, equipment, accommodation and living expenses.

Historical Documents

Step 1: Find out your tuition fee

The easiest way to find out your tuition fee is to look up your electronic Statement of Account (eSOA) in My Student Records (MySR) (opens in a new window). Your eSOA details the subjects you are enrolled in, your total fees payable, the due date and methods of payment. Please ensure all details on your eSOA are correct before census date. For more information check out the Statement of Account webpage. Please note that if you change your enrolment by adding or dropping subjects after you have paid, but before the term census date, you may be liable for additional fees.

Step 2: Find out about HELP options

The Higher Education Loan Programme (HELP) is a range of loans introduced by the Commonwealth Government in 2005 to provide fee payment assistance to eligible students. Loans are for Australian citizens studying in Australia or overseas. Permanent residents who hold a humanitarian visa are also eligible if studying in Australia. Loans are not available to international students, New Zealand citizens or other permanent residents.
As a full fee paying student you may be eligible for FEE-HELP to assist in paying your tuition fees.


Step 3: Manage your finances

Fee deadlines

Deadlines for dealing with your fees are dictated by University census dates. You will need to have paid your fees and/or provided your tax file number as part of your FEE-HELP application to defer all or part of your fees by this date.
