Information for Future Postgraduate Students
On this page, you can discover just what UNE has to offer, how to apply and get help for any questions you may have. Not sure what you want to study or want to know more about a course? Search our Course Catalogue.
You can choose from a wide range of postgraduate courses which can be studied on campus or by external mode. UNE is the only Australian university to provide such a wide range of courses externally and some are unique to UNE.
Campus facilities are state of the art and if you choose to study externally UNE's long experience in teaching by distance means support and services for our external students (eg library and residential schools) are highly refined. Alternatively, on campus residences are a pleasant walk from the main university facilities.
Fee information for Postgraduate Coursework Students
Most postgraduate coursework degrees at UNE have both Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP) and Full Fee paying places available, though CSP places are subject to availability each year. Full Fee paying places cover the full cost of courses, and students studying in Full Fee places are eligible for a Government loan called FEE-HELP. Full fee paying fees will vary for each course, but are the same, no matter whether courses are studied on campus or by distance education.

Fee information for Postgraduate Research Students
Students applying to study a research degree may also be eligible to apply for Research Training Scheme (RTS) places. The Research Training Scheme provides an exemption from course fees (Higher Education Contribution Scheme (HECS)) for eligible students who commenced a research higher degree after 31 August 2000. Students who gain such an exemption are said to have an “RTS place”.
