The cost of study

Discover the average student loan that is accumulated by a university graduate

Over the course of their study, the average university graduate enrolled between 2003 to 2007 accumulated an average of $30,000 in student loans. Adjusting for the cost price index, this is of the magnitude of $39,000 in 2018. However, in 2018 a 'fees-free' first year of tertiary study was introduced, which covers approximately $8,500 of fees for university study.
