Important information about fees

The fees quoted below are for 2017 and 2018.  For future years of your course Charles Darwin University reserves the right to adjust annual tuition fees to take into account increases in University and course delivery costs. Therefore, tuition fees are subject to increase. 

From 2013, international students enrolled in a Higher Education course (Undergraduate or Postgraduate) will need to pay the Student Services and Amenities fee (SSA Fee). For more information, please go to student services and amenities fees.

If you are thinking about studying a Vocational Education and Training (VET) course, you may be entitled to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). Find out more about RPL.
