Enjoy the savings

For many, travelling for study is not possible or desirable. Whether it's financial or simply a matter of time, studying at home makes so much sense today.

Currently, to study in Melbourne as an international student costs upwards of A$25,000 per year when you allow for accommodation, campus costs, general living expenses, flights and taxes. Online study allows you to continue working while you study to improve your skills and knowledge.

*Eligible to international students studying outside of Australia only.
