2017/2018 Costs

Administration Fee (AUD$375)

The program administration fee applies to both ACICIS member and non-member university applicants and is payable upon successful acceptance into the program. The fee covers application processing costs and the provision of an in-country orientation, inclusive of two nights twin share accommodation. The program administration fee is non-refundable

Tuition Fee

Tuition fee categories differ for ACICIS member and non-member university applicants, as follows:

Member University Fees Non-Member University Fees
 Three-week course (1 session)  AUD$1,097  AUD$1,426
 Six-week course (2 consecutive sessions)  AUD$1,973  AUD$2,565


Tuition fees for Australian students may be paid for on behalf of students through the HECS deferred payment scheme at the discretion of individual universities. Tuition fees must be paid in full to ACICIS 6 weeks before the commencement of the program. See application forms for details on methods of payment. Withdrawal from the program after the tuition fee has been paid to ACICIS and up until six weeks prior to the program commencement will attract a withdrawal fee equivalent to 30% of the tuition fee, with the balance of the tuition fee being refundable. Less than six weeks prior to the program commencement, no refunds will be possible.
