Fees and Associated Costs
The Arrupe® Program is subsidised by the Australian Province of the Society of Jesus. The student contribution in 2022 will be $250 per semester. However, students who are enrolled in the Supervised Giving of the Exercises will pay half this fee which is $250 for the year. There may also be opportunities for retreats and other opportunities; should students wish to participate in them, these offerings will incur an extra cost.
A major component of the Program is the Supervised Giving of the full Spiritual Exercises. Students will pay for their supervision while engaged in the Supervised Giving of the Exercises. The cost of this will be roughly $1,280 (16 sessions @ $80 per session), which they will pay directly to their supervisor. From 2023 the Supervised Giving of the Exercises will no longer be a unit in the MSD program.
In cases of hardship or financial difficulty, students will be able to apply to the O’Shea Fund to receive some financial assistance for supervision.
