The cost of your education as a Commonwealth Supported Student is shared between what you pay and what the Government pays. Generally speaking the Commonwealth Government pays part of the cost of your education and as a student you pay a Student Contribution (formerly known as HECS). Student Contribution amounts are calculated per Unit of Study, which is equivalent to a 'course' at UniSA. Units of Study/courses are grouped into Bands which attract different Student Contribution amounts.
Your Student Contribution amount for each course is based on the Band amount (refer above for amount appropriate to you) and the EFTSL1 value of the course.
The formula for calculating your contribution amount for this course is:
EFSTL1 value for the course X Band amount
As an example:
LANG 1022 has an EFTSL1 value of 0.1252 and is a Band 1 course.
Therefore the Student Contribution Amount (fee) you will be required to pay for this course is equal to 0.125 X $5,868, or $733.003 .
1The EFTSL (Equivalent Full Time Student Load) value is a measure of the study load for a course, as a measure of the total required study load for a full year in undertaking your program on a full-time basis.
2Please note all EFTSL values are published and calculated at ten decimal places. Values are displayed to three decimal places for ease of interpretation.
3If the amount calculated consists of whole dollars and a number of cents, the amount will be rounded down to the nearest whole dollar.
