Tuition for graduate studies will depend upon your program of study. Most project or thesis based programs have a per term cost. Course based programs are assessed tuition for each class you take. Some programs have a flat tuition amount either for the entire program or per term.

All programs also have student fees that are charged for each term to cover services like health insurance or a bus pass.

Thesis and project based

Graduate students in a thesis or project based program pay tuition three times a year for as long as they are enrolled in their program.

Course based

Students in course based programs pay tuition for each class they take. Every class is assigned a number of credit units (usually three) which determines their cost.
