How much will I pay?

The cost of your studies with USQ will depend on whether you are a domestic or international student, the fee category of the program you are studying and the courses you enrol in each semester. 

Commonwealth supported students

Students enrolled in a Commonwealth supported place are charged a student contribution rate.  The subject area and corresponding Band level will determine your course fees.
