For the first time, Studymove Pty Ltd has collected data relating to the postgraduate coursework tuition fees for Domestic full fee paying students. 

Domestic fees Australia

After receiving requests from various Planning Offices at Australian universities, we have developed a database to identify the domestic full-fee paying tuition fees published by Australian universities.

 

Pricing is one of the most important elements of the marketing mix and for the education sector, the topic of price represents a complex process. It involves a detailed understanding of student preferences and the position of other competitors in the marketplace.

 

Australian universities are experiencing a more competitive environment within Australian borders so there is a need to have a greater understanding of the pricing strategy implemented by competitors nationally and not only from a state or territory perspective.

 

This competitive environment and change in student preferences is creating the need for Australian universities to better understand the complete spectrum of pricing strategies across all universities and compare their position against all competitors as students are comparing not only universities in a particular city but nationally.

 

In Australia, more than 240,000 domestic students are enrolled in postgraduate programs every year. 

 

For the first time, Studymove Pty Ltd has collected data relating to the postgraduate coursework tuition fees for Domestic full-fee paying students. Our analysis includes the domestic full-fee paying fees of more than 2,600 programs across 35 Australian Universities


The database contains a listing of all programs by Australian university and the 2019 fees for full-fee paying domestic students. Also, to facilitate further analysis, programs are classified into eleven broad fields of study.
 
 

 

 

INITIAL FINDINGS      

 

Collecting information on domestic fees was not an easy task. Several universities presented their data based on credit points instead of annual fees and in some cases, there was not an orderly format to inform domestic students about program fees. However, we successfully obtained information of more than 2,600 postgraduate coursework domestic full-fee paying fees from 35 Australian Universities. Below we present some valuable initial findings for the programs in the areas of a) Management and Commerce, b) Engineering and c) Information Technology.  

 

A. MANAGEMENT AND COMMERCE      

In the field of Management and Commerce, we identified a wide range of domestic full-fee paying fees across 34 Australian universities. On average, across these 34 Australian universities, the 2019 annual tuition domestic full-fee paying fees for Management and Commerce programs is $27,735 with nearly a third of universities setting their fees above $30,000.
