    “The UQ MBA Student Scholarship alleviated the burden of resigning from a job I loved to enrol in the full-time intensive program for a year. It also provided reputation benefits and career advantages in addition to the MBA letters after my name! Being awarded an MBA scholarship was an honour which signalled my personal work ethic and determination to succeed to employers.” 

    – Suzanne Wood, UQ MBA alum

    Are you eligible for FEE-HELP?

    FEE-HELP is a government loan Australian citizens and eligible visa holders can access to help pay all or part of your tuition fees.

    Alternative payment options

    If you aren’t eligible for FEE-HELP, you may need to make your own arrangements to cover tuition fees.

    This can include:

    MBA pathways and study load

    Depending on your circumstances, you might like to consider how being enrolled in a pathway program or your study load affects the overall MBA costs.

    Studying full-time and part-time

    The UQ MBA offers flexible study options to suit your personal circumstances, meaning you can complete the program in as little as 1 year or part-time up to 10 years. However, it’s worth noting the more time spent completing the program can incur more costs, as annual tuition fees generally increase between 4-6% each year.

    Graduate certificate pathway

    If you don’t meet entry requirements to the MBA upfront, you can start with the graduate certificate. Currently, if you transition from the graduate certificate into the MBA, your tuition fees will remain the same. Students are encouraged to start with the MBA if they meet the entry requirements and exit early with the graduate certificate if your circumstances change.
