Fees and scholarships

Learn more about the fees and scholarships that could be applicable to you as an international student.

Tuition fees are based on the course of study, and fees increase annually. UWA offers a number of scholarships to international students to assist with the cost of study.


The course fee is payable as a lump sum, but can be paid in two instalments on a semester basis. The annual course fee is not payable on a proportionate basis.


Semester fees are due to be paid by the first day of each semester and no later than the relevant teaching period census date in the year of enrolment.

A late fee will apply if tuition fees are not paid by the census date.

Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF)

A compulsory Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) is payable for each year or part-year of your study. The fee is used to improve the quality and quantity of services to students.
