Uni in Aus: How do the fees work?

My DSs have dual citizenship.

The reality is that with the way things are going in the UK, there's no way we will be able to afford any help with higher education, and even if we could, they'll graduate to unemployment and absolutely no hope of ever owning their own home.

Therefore we are considering our options.

Can any one tell me how much it would cost for a DC to attend an Australian university? I'm aware that they may be classed as 'overseas students' in that we would probably emigrate back when DS1 is 17, finishing A levels.

Any thoughts welcome.

I'm not really sure how it works in your DSs case, overseas students etc, but students here take out HECs loans, basically gvmt loans like in the UK, and pay them off over the next 20 odd years. So not dissimilar to the uk system. I'm really not up on the details of amounts though so no idea if more or less than the UK.

I haven't read it in it's entirety but this Wikipedia article may be of help.
