If the number of federally subsidised places has run out then citizens and PRs have to pay international fees to get on the course. PRs are not eligible for HECS deferral ie they must pay fees up front. Citizens are eligible for HECS deferral. HECS Debts are paid back through their tax when they graduate. Graduates can go overseas and avoid HECS debts.

Bondi, trouble is the funded places are apparently getting fewer and fewer, with HECS getting higher and higher as funding is cutback.

The government does seem to be pushing the fee increases slowly and steadily and through other means.
