Domestic Students


Because AIM is Australia’s leading music institute, we’re uniquely positioned to offer outstanding value and quality to all our students.

We’re dedicated to giving our students a high quality music education experience – and to ensuring that our courses are great value for money. Your course fees are an important investment in your future career in the music industry.

AIM’s fees are reviewed annually. Criteria utilised in annual fee reviews is outlined in the attached Fee Review Policy.

All listed tuition fees are correct at time of publication, but may be subject to change.



We recognise that tertiary education is a big investment – and that it can be challenging for students and their families to navigate all the available options. At AIM, we’re here to help you make sense of it all, and to ensure that your tertiary education is as accessible and affordable as possible.


AIM is a registered Higher Education Provider – which means eligible undergraduate and postgraduate students are able to access FEE-HELP – the Australian Government’s Higher Education Loan Program (HELP) to assist students with the cost of course fees. In most cases, FEE-HELP will cover your entire course fees.

If you’re an Australian citizen or hold a permanent humanitarian visa and reside in Australia, you can apply for FEE-HELP. Visit the government website Study Assist or call 1800 020 108 for more information.


If you don’t qualify for FEE-HELP,  or you prefer to pay as you go and finish your studies debt-free, upfront payment is the way to go.  We’ll invoice your tuition fees each semester and you can pay via direct deposit/transfer, credit card or Flywire.


If you’re an Australian citizen or permanent resident, you can apply for additional government assistance through Austudy. 




If you’re relocating from a remote or regional area to study at AIM,  you could be eligible for a one-off payment of up to $5,000 to assist with your moving costs. Visit the Tertiary Access Payment page on the Services Australia website to find out how to apply.
