International Fees


Tuition fees and other costs quoted will be quoted on your SAE course offer letter. All cost quoted are are an estimate only and may be subject to change. International student fees are increased annually and may also be increased at other times without notice. Fees and costs quoted are based on the requested course start date and the SAE International Student Fee Schedule current at the date of offer. Applicants should note that any changes to the study plan, including adding or dropping a module of study, may result in a price variation from the estimated commencing trimester fee. In the event of a variation between the fees on the offer letter and the approved SAE Institute Schedule of fees and charges, the approved schedule will prevail.

How to pay fees

Minimum deposit

A minimum deposit for tuition will be quoted on your SAE course offer letter.  This must be paid in full before the student can be enrolled in the course and before an electronic eCOE (Confirmation of Enrolment) can be issued.  If there is any balance of first study period fees owing, these must be paid in full before the specified due-date (first day of course commencement). Students can choose to pay more than the minimum deposit upfront or may choose to pay more than the first study period fees in advance.

Subsequent study period payments:

SAE do not allow repayment plans or special payment arrangements for international students. Subsequent study period fees must be paid in full before the first day of each study period. Failure to pay tuition fees by the due date may result in actions including: blocking of access to campus, withholding of academic results, legal debt recovery action and; termination of enrolment and COE.
