Commonwealth supported students who commenced their studies before 1 January 2021

The Australian Government’s Job-ready Graduates program made changes to fees for CSP students who commence a new course of study from 1 January 2021. Under these changes, enrolment in most honours programs is treated as a new course of study. This means you will need to pay at the new Job-ready Graduates rate for your honours program unless you completed your related undergraduate degree prior to 1 January 2021. You will also need to pay at the new Job-ready Graduates rate if you transfer to a new course to do honours as this transfer is treated as a new course of study. Find out more about honours fees.
