International Undergraduate fees

Relevant qualifications

You need to pay undergraduate tuition fees if you plan on studying towards any of the following qualifications at UC. 

Calculate your tuition fees

Please note that there is no flat fee for undergraduate qualifications. Your total tuition fees for each year are calculated by the cost of each individual course that makes up your programme of study.

The easiest way to calculate your fees is using the Fees estimator. It lets you add and remove courses to estimate your tuition fees and email the total to yourself for future reference.

Tuition fees are subject to change and are reviewed annually. The University reserves the right to change these published fees before enrolment to reflect any changes in Government or University Council Policy. See Enrolment and Fees Policies and Regulations for more information.
