Examples - how to work out the student contribution amount

A topic at Band 1

Josh is a new student in 2018 and has enrolled in NURS1001. Josh has checked the student contribution band for this topic. This is a 4.5 unit topic at Band 1 ($6,444 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.

NURS1001: 4.5 units at Band 1 rate = 4.5/36 x $6,444

=

$805

Josh's student contribution amount for NURS1001 in 2018 is $805

A topic at Band 3

Ann is a new student in 2018 and has enrolled in LLAW1211. Ann has checked the student contribution band for this topic. This is a 4.5 unit topic at Band 3 ($10,754 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 $10,754

=

$1,344

Ann's student contribution amount for LLAW1211 in 2018 is $1,344
