Some first-class universities such as Monash University, The University of Melbourne, The University of Sydney and other universities all range from 22,000 to 30,000 Australian dollars. Courses in medicine, law, and engineering are much higher. For example, medical courses charge not less than 30,000 Australian dollars per year, and law charges about 25,000 Australian dollars.
