If you are a continuing student (enrolled before 1 January 2021) studying units in disciplines with increased student contribution amounts, you will continue paying the same amount as you would have, had these reforms not been implemented for any units that would otherwise have an increased student contribution.
If you are a commencing student studying units in arts, society and culture, law and economics, creative arts and communications you will see increases in your student contributions for those units.
If you are studying a course in a key growth area you will see significant reductions in your student contributions for unit in disciplines with decreased student contribution amounts.
These new student contribution amounts will also apply to education and nursing students who had their contributions grandfathered from 2010, effectively ending these grandfathering arrangements.
Eligible students can still defer their student contributions through a world-leading HECS-HELP loan, meaning there are no up-front costs for studying at university.
