All undergraduate and honours degrees have Commonwealth supported places (CSPs) available, except the Associate Degree in Aviation (Professional Pilots) program, which is full-fee only.
A CSP is a place at university where the tuition fee is jointly paid by you and the Commonwealth Government. Your share of the fee (student contribution) is set by the government and determined by the discipline areas (also referred to as bands) of your individual enrolled courses (subjects), not the overall program.
To be eligible for a CSP you must be:
- an Australian citizen, or
- an Australian permanent visa holder or New Zealand citizen, and
- meet the relevant citizenship and residency requirements.
If you are an Australian citizen, you will meet the CSP residency requirements if you undertake at least some of your program of study in Australia.
If you are a permanent visa holder or a New Zealand citizen, you must be resident in Australia for the duration of your course(s) to meet the CSP residency requirements.
As a CSP student, you may be eligible to apply for a HECS-HELP loan, which can be used to defer payment of up to 100% of your student contribution fees.
