International PhD candidates and DBA candidates are required to pay tuition fees at the beginning of each semester.

Payment of semester 1 tuition fees is due by the 25th January and payment of semester 2 tuition fees is due by the 25th July each year.

Both the Macquarie University Higher Degree Research Office and the MGSM Research Office will contact you, via your student email account, at the beginning of each semester.  You are required to check your current debt by logging in to eStudent.


If your fees are covered by FEE-HELP, the Research Training Scheme or a scholarship you are also advised to check your current debt regularly as outstanding library fines will be shown as a debt.

If you are a FEE-HELP student, your debt will be deferred in due course.

Macquarie University has a policy that students who pay late (i.e.; payments received after the due date) will be liable for a $200.00 late payment fine.  (Macquarie University Calendar of Governance, Legislation and Rules - 2006).

If you are unable to pay your tuition fee by the due date please complete the MGSM Fee Payment Extension Request Form and submit it to the MGSM Research Office before the due date.  If you are granted a fee extension or a fee instalment payment plan you will still be liable to pay the $200 late payment fine.

Further information regarding tuition fees is available on the Macquarie University Office of Financial Services  website.
