At Murdoch, you pay for the individual units you enrol in, not an overall course fee. The total cost of your course will therefore vary depending on what units you choose. An indicative fee will be provided with your offer, however you can use our online Course Fee Calculator to estimate the amount you will need to pay.
We understand you may need help financially whilst studying for your qualification. Our International Welcome Scholarship therefore offers eligible students between $8,000 and $11,000, depending on the course you study.
