How much should I expect to pay?

The number of units you must complete to graduate depends on the course and if you receive advanced standing. This, in turn, will effect how much your Southern Cross University Online online course fees will cost you.

For example, if you hold a bachelor degree, graduate diploma or certificate in a similar field, or have equivalent work experience, you could receive up to eight units advanced standing for the MBA and up to six units advanced standing for the Master of Healthcare Leadership – significantly reducing the cost of your degree and the length of your study.

How can I get assistance?

The Australian Government offers a FEE-HELP loan to eligible students, which can pay for all, or part, of your online university fees. You pay the loan back through your tax, once your income reaches a particular level.

If you are an Australian citizen, or you hold a permanent humanitarian visa and will be living in Australia while you study, you are eligible for FEE-HELP. New Zealand citizens or people holding another type of permanent visa are not eligible.
