Band 2

The cost of your education as a Commonwealth supported student is shared between what you pay and what the Government pays. .  As a Commonwealth supported student, the Commonwealth Government pays a part of the cost of your education and, as a student you pay a student contribution. Student contribution amounts are calculated per course. Courses are grouped into bands which attract different student contribution amounts. 

Your student contribution amount for each course is based on the band amount and the EFTSL1 value of the course.

Band 2 consists of courses in the following areas: architecture, IT, other health, engineering, science, environmental studies.

2022 Band 2 fees

Area of Study per 1 EFTSL1 per 4.5 unit course
2 architecture, IT, other health, allied health, engineering, science, environmental studies $8,021 $1,002


Student contribution amount for a course:

The formula for calculating your contribution amount for this course is:

 EFTSL1 value for the course x band amount

 As an example:

EEET 2022 has an EFTSL1 value of 0.252 and is a band 2 course with a band amount of $8,021.

Therefore the student contribution amount you will be required to pay for this course is equal to:

0.25 (EFTSL value) x $8,021 (band amount) = $2,005.003.


For previous years, check the historical student contribution rates. 

1 The EFTSL (Equivalent Full Time Student Load) value is a measure of the study load for a course, as a measure of the total required study load for a full year in undertaking your program on a full-time basis.

2 Please note all EFTSL values are published and calculated at ten decimal places. Values are displayed to three decimal places for ease of interpretation.

3 If the amount calculated consists of whole dollars and a number of cents, the amount will be rounded down to the nearest whole dollar.
