STUDENT SERVICES AND
Under current Australian Government
regulations, universities may charge
students a Student Services and
Amenities Fee (SSAF).
Further information about the Student
Services and Amenities Fee, including
any amount you may be required to pay
in 2014, will be available at:
In 2013, international students did not
pay a separate Student Services and
Amenities Fee, as an equivalent amount
was paid from fee revenue.
Other costs to consider include general
course costs, costs of living, club
memberships, Student Union activities
and Melbourne University Sport services.
If you are enrolling in the Under 18
Supervision Program coordinated by
International Student Services (ISS), a
program fee is charged.

points of study. The exact cost of
your course depends on the type and
number of subjects you take.
