2019 Costs

Administration Fee (AUD$409)

The program administration fee applies to both ACICIS member and non-member university applicants and is payable upon successful acceptance into the program by July 31 (first round) or September 30 (second round). The fee covers application processing costs and the provision of an in-country orientation, inclusive of three nights twin share accommodation. The program administration fee is non-refundable.

Tuition Fee (AUD$3375/$4499)

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

AUD$3,375 for member university students
AUD$4,499 for students from non-member universities

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 by November 1. 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 1 December will attract a withdrawal fee of $956 with the balance of the tuition fee being refundable. After 1 December, no refunds will be possible.
