2020 Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP)
The majority of undergraduate degrees and a limited number of postgraduate degrees have CSPs available.
If you receive a CSP, you need to pay the student contribution amount for each unit of study. Units are divided into ‘bands’ and costs for each band is set by the government.
You can check on the credit point value, contribution band and student contribution amount using the Student Contributions Amount by Unit Search to help determine the cost of your unit.
