Higher Degree by 研究 Student Fee 计算 Information

UniSC uses the research consumption enrolment model for Higher Degree by 研究 (HDR) student enrolments and subsequent fees.

This ensures that research student unit loads and fees fluctuate (decrease and increase) in accordance with the time a research student is actively working towards their HDR.

How are fees calculated?

UniSC counts the number of days a research student is actively working on their HDR per research term. A unit enrolment value will be recorded and reported according to the number of days a student is active in a given term, and fees will be charged accordingly.
To calculate the tuition fee cost for a single unit of enrolment, divide the maximum fee by the maximum possible number of units per term for the term (i.e. 48).

国内  $11,000 $11,000 / 48 $229.16 $60.77
国际 $14,500 $14,500 / 48 $302.08 $80.11

* Estimated Daily Rate calculated on a 181 day term

How are 'active days' counted?

Active days are counted one calendar day at a time for students enrolled full-time, or half a calendar day at a time for part-time students.
A student is considered 'active' for counting enrolment units unless they:

  • Have not yet commenced their Higher Degree by 研究
  • Are on an approved leave of absence
  • Are under thesis examination (or are waiting to graduate)
什么是术语?

A 'term' is a period in which UniSC counts and reports a student’s activity in their HDR program.

Every research student is enrolled in two research terms per year: Term 1 and Term 2.

There are two terms in Semester 1 (A and B) and two terms in Semester 2 (A and B).

项名称 开始日期 结束日期 天数
1A 01/01/2021 30/06/2021 181
1B 01/04/2021 30/09/2021 182
2A 01/07/2021 31/12/2021 183
2B 01/10/2021 31/03/2022 182*

A student’s research term grouping (A or B) is determined by the date on which they commenced their research degree.

1 January to 31 March; and

1 July to 30 September

1B及2B

1 April to 30 June; and

1 October to 31 December

How is the Higher Degree by 研究 enrolled unit value calculated?

The total active days in a term is divided by the total number of days available in the term, multiplied by the maximum possible units (i.e. 48.00).

For example, John was active for 121 days in a term that is 183 days long.

(121/183)*48 = 31.73

John’s unit value is 31.73

What changes a student’s fees?

费用 will decrease when students:

  • take an approved leave of absence; or
  • change study load from full to part-time
  • submit their thesis (or otherwise discontinue their program)

费用 will increase when students:

  • change study load from part to full-time
  • return from a leave of absence earlier than planned
  • commence the period of revisions to their thesis

Where a change occurs after a term Census date, a new invoice will be available after the term has concluded. If a credit is owed, this will be applied to the next term’s fees.

Tuition fee scholarship recipients

Tuition fee offset scholarships will continue to absorb the recipient’s tuition fees (including any adjustments) until the scholarship expiry date. If a student is still working towards completing their Higher Degree by 研究 after the tuition fee scholarship expires (including during the period of revisions to their thesis), the student will be liable for their tuition fees. Refer to the “What changes a student's fees?” section for reasons that fees may decrease or increase within a term of enrolment. Any credit remaining at the completion or discontinuation of the program is refunded to the scholarship (it is not available to the tuition fee scholarship recipient as cash withdrawal).

Tuition fee paying students

学生 without a tuition fee scholarship (including those whose previous tuition fee scholarship has expired) will be liable for their tuition fees. See the “What changes a student's fees?” section for reasons that fees may decrease or increase within a term of enrolment. Any credit remaining at the completion or discontinuation of the program is available to the student as cash withdrawal.

Student 服务 and Amenities Fee

研究学生 will continue to be liable for the Student 服务 and Amenities (SSAF), including any adjustments. Refer to the “What changes a student's fees?” section for reasons that fees may decrease or increase within a term of enrolment. Any credit remaining at the completion or discontinuation of the program is available to the student as cash withdrawal.
