Tuition fee is one of the most important costs that has to be borne by students aspiring to study in Australia. Tuition costs alone make up a significant chunk of funds that is required by students to pay at universities and colleges in Australia in order to get good quality education.

The tuition fees can vary from university to university or program to program and also based on the type of degree. It can therefore be rather challenging to initially determine the total cost to study in Australia from Nepal. Especially clinical degrees with hospital integration and Engineering or other specialized degrees tend to be more expensive compared to the most sought-after or easily available programs at Bachelor's and master's degree levels.
The cost of Diploma in Nursing can be around 25000 AUD whereas the cost of Diploma in Accounting can be around 10000 AUD per year but it can also vary based on the fact where you choose to study i.e. at a private college or TAFE or a university or at a Pathway college leading to Bachelor degrees.
Tuition fees can vary according to the programs or the ranking of universities in Australia. If a university is highly ranked such as the University of Sydney, you should expect to pay a high amount of tuition fees. However, a similar course can be easily found at other universities where the tuition fee is much lower and easily affordable for Nepalese students thereby reducing the total cost to study in Australia from Nepal.
The tuition fee at the Master's degree level in Australia is usually more expensive than Bachelor's level studies, however, the tuition fee at Bachelor's degree level (highly ranked university) can be more expensive than the tuition fee for the master's degree level at a normal university.
Similarly, tuition fees for domestic students are usually much cheaper than that for international students in Australia. Here is a brief range of tuition fees for VET programs, Bachelor, Master, and doctoral studies.

This is for your general estimation purposes only and you must check the exact tuition fees at the time of your process for university/college application. We highly recommend you choose a program that fits your budget or else it may be difficult for you to finance your education once you are in Australia. The overall tuition fee tends to be much cheaper for Nepalese students when compared to universities in the USA.
