Fees for external examiners
Universities Australia regularly reviews the standard fees that it recommends universities pay to external examiners for Masters, PhDs, and Higher and Professional Doctorates.
The recommended fees for 2023 are:
- $309 for Masters theses and non-research Professional Doctorates.
- $549 for Doctor of Philosophy theses, Higher Doctorates, and Professional Doctorates where the thesis comprises more that 66% of the assessment.
Recommended fees for each calendar year are reviewed and published in early January.
Changes to recommended fees take a number of operational and economic factors into account, including the Consumer Price Index.
