Fee Schedule - International Students

The College fees are determined each year by the Provincial and Council of the Marist Brothers detailing tuition, boarding and other costs and may be subject to change. The Tuition Fee for International Students is higher than for Australian students because Australian students receive both Federal and State Government per capita grants. There are also additional administration costs for International Students. It is compulsory for all International Students to contribute to Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC).

Administration Fee

The Administration Fee is $150 (incl. GST) per student and accompanies the Expression of Interest Form. This fee is non refundable.

Acceptance Fee – Non Refundable

An Acceptance Fee of $5,000 is payable at the time of acceptance to secure a place. $2,500 will be refunded when the student leaves the College provided all financial obligations (including medical bills) have been met and all textbooks have been returned in an acceptable condition to the Textbook Hire Department. In the event of visa refusal, the fee will be considered as part of the refund provisions.
Also at the time of acceptance a prepaid tuition and non-tuition fee is required.
