    Local full time students

    Course fees are made up of two components, tuition fees and resource fees.

    Tuition fees are determined by multiplying the course fee rate by the nominal hours, which is the number of hours in which an average student could be expected to complete each unit. They are not the hours of training or instruction.

    Resource fees are charges for material that are essential to a course or unit, and are purchased by NMT to be used by students during the course.

    Fees may vary depending on the units you are enrolled in so an approximate amount has been shown. You will be given the exact amount of your fees at enrolment. Part time student fees will vary depending on the number of units you are enrolled in.

    Please note, you may also need to buy textbooks or equipment for your course.
