HECS Rates and Miscellaneous Charges

The amount of HECs you pay is dependent on when you started your degree.  Please check the relevant year to see how much you will pay.

Education and Nursing students

The amount students pay for nursing and education courses changed in 2009.  If you started your course before 1 January 2010 as a Commonwealth Supported Student in that course, you will continue to pay the reduced rate of $4923 for education and nursing subjects in 2015.

You will be eligible for pre-2010 status if you:

  • are returning to study the same course in 2013 for which you were enrolled as a Commonwealth supported Student prior to 2010
  • were a Commonwealth Supported Student in another course that started before 2010 and have not completed that course
  • were a Commonwealth Supported Student in a course that started before 2010 and are now starting a related honours course.

If you have not studied at university before, or do not meet the criteria for pre-2010 status, you will be charged at the new Band 1 rates for education and nursing subject areas.
