Student contribution amounts under the Higher Education Support Act 2003 (HESA) and tuition fees support the course described in the Course Outline/Class Summary and include tuition, teaching materials and student access to the workshops for the stated course hours.
OPTIONAL WORKSHOP FEE
This Workshop Fee is for additional access to the workshop and use of equipment, tooling and consumable items during extra hours. It is not essential to course completion. Payment of the Workshop Fee is optional, but if a student chooses not to pay it, access to the workshops outside of stated course hours is not allowed.
Each workshop sources appropriate specialist materials, which are made available to students to facilitate their working effectively, efficiently and safely within our programs. The School of Art & Design is able to supply materials that don’t compromise ANU obligations under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (WHS), and that have been assessed as suitable for each course.
The Material Fee is payable for the School of Art & Design to supply materials that become your physical property. You can choose to pay the Materials Fee and have these materials supplied to you through the School of Art & Design, allowing you to take advantage of the GST-free bulk purchasing power of the ANU. These materials are also WHS compliant.
Students have the choice of acquiring these materials from a supplier other than the School of Art & Design, however students should note that many materials may not be WHS compliant (and therefore are not approved for use in the workshops), or are not available for individuals to purchase because they must be supplied and stored in a particular way in order to meet WHS regulations.
