The tuition fees you pay will depend on the type of fee place you hold.
In both cases, the ‘Estimated tuition fee’ is provided as a guide only based on a typical enrolment of students completing this course within the same year in which they started. The cost will vary depending on the units you choose, your study load, the length of your course and any approved Credit for Prior Learning you have.
Each unit you enrol in has a credit point value. The ‘Estimated tuition fee’ is calculated by adding together 4 credit points of a typical combination of units for that course. Four credit points is used as it represents a typical enrolment load for a Graduate Certificate.
You can find the credit point value of each unit under the Unit Description by searching for the unit in the Handbook.
