How much is my study going to cost?

The cost of your study will vary according to the number of units you take and the type of course you choose. For more information we have a guide to Getting Started.

You can pay on a unit-by-unit basis each study term, either upfront or by arranging a FEE-HELP loan through the Commonwealth Government. Australian citizens are able to borrow the full amount of their fees for many courses from the Commonwealth and pay this loan back through the tax system. For more information about FEE-HELP, visit Study Assist.

 

Can I still study with OUA if I have been posted overseas?

In short, yes.

OUA provides online education to all students regardless of their location, and is currently the only option available to Australians permanently living overseas wanting to access education with an Australian education provider.

If you're an Australian citizen or permanent resident working overseas and studying through OUA, you won't be subject to international student fees.

However, please note that there are residency conditions that will apply if you are looking to access FEE-HELP, the Commonwealth government loan scheme (available to eligible students). For more information on FEE-HELP, please visit Study Assist.
