Fees, Scholarships and Entry Requirements
Click here for an overview of current tuition fees applicable for the Master of Interpreting and Translation Studies. This course offers both Full Fee paying positions and a limited number of Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP).
A Commonwealth Supported Place is where you and the Federal Government jointly cover the cost of your tertiary studies. You therefore pay a lower course fee called the student contribution amount (SCA). The number of units you study each semester and the unit discipline (e.g. Arts ) will determine your contribution amount. Learn more about Commonwealth Supported Places below:
- Student contribution amount calculator to estimate your fees.
- Study Assist and the government portal myUniAssist.
- Monash’s CSP website.
Full-fee paying domestic students may also be eligible for FEE-HELP, an Australian government loan scheme that assists with up to 100% of your tuition fees. Download the Fee-Help Brochure to find out more.
Along with your tuition fee, a yearly Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) is applicable which provides funding for student services and amenities of a non-academic nature. To calculate your fees, click here.
