As a Commonwealth supported student studying in 2014, you will be charged a student contribution amount for each topic you enrol in. The amount you pay for each topic depends on which subject area the topic relates to. Your student contribution amount will be calculated using the annual student contribution amount from the table below.

Examples - how to work out the student contribution amount

A topic at Band 3

Jane is a new student in 2014 and has enrolled in LLAW1211. Jane has checked the student contribution band for this topic. This is a 4.5 unit topic at Band 3 ($10,085 per year).

A full-time load at Flinders is 36 units (1 EFTSL). To calculate the student contribution amount divide the topic unit value (4.5) by the total units for the year (36) and multiply by the annual student contribution amount.

LLAW1211: 4.5 units at Band 3 rate = 4.5/36 x $10,085

=

$1,260.00

Jane's student contribution amount for LLAW1211 in 2014 is $1,260.00

A topic at Band 1

John is a new student in 2014 and has enrolled in NURS1101. John has checked the student contribution band for this topic. This is a 4.5 unit topic at Band 1 ($6,044 per year).

A full-time load at Flinders is 36 units (1 EFTSL). To calculate the student contribution amount divide the topic unit value (4.5) by the total units for the year (36) and multiply by the annual student contribution amount.

NURS1101: 4.5 units at Band 1 rate = 4.5/36 x $6,044

=

$755.00

John's student contribution amount for NURS1101 in 2014 is $755.00
