The latest updated figure for your country will be listed in your offer letter.

A student should expect that the indicative semester course fee, as shown on the Letter of Offer, might vary from the actual course fee according to the units (subjects) undertaken. The indicative fee is just a guide as to what the course fee will be until semester enrolment is completed.
