Fees and charges

Equivalent Full Time Student Load (EFTSL)
EFTSL is the standard annual full time load. Eight credit points is considered the standard full time load for one year of study. If you are studying a graduate certificate of 4 credit points, your total course EFTSL is 0.5.

Commonwealth supported place (CSP)
A Commonwealth supported place is one for which the University receives some Government funding. Students enrolled in these places are required to contribute only part of the cost of their course. To be eligible for a Commonwealth supported place you must be an Australian citizen, or a New Zealand citizen or holder of a permanent visa who will be residing in Australia for the duration of your unit/s of study.

* The indicative annual course fee shown has been provided as a guide only. It has been calculated on the basis of a typical enrolment of a student undertaking the course in 2016, and reflects the cost involved in undertaking a full-time quota of units within the specified discipline. The 2016 CSP course fees may change if the Commonwealth Government's proposed fee deregulation and reforms legislation is passed.

The actual fees charged by Deakin University will depend upon the discipline from which each individual unit is chosen, and may vary from the indicative course fee cited, particularly if units are chosen from a number of disciplines. The cost of each unit offered in 2016 can be viewed from the Unit Search.

The fees per unit/credit point may increase annually due to rises in the cost of course delivery and service.

Deakin assumes no responsibility for persons relying on "indicative course fees" to calculate the total future cost of their course.

Australian citizens or holders of a permanent humanitarian visa, enrolling in a CSP, may be eligible for HECS-HELP to assist in paying their tuition fees. For more information about HECS-HELP visit the Study Assist website.

Full-fee paying place - Domestic (DFP)
A full-fee paying place is one which the University does not receive any Government funding. Students enrolled in these places are required to contribute the full cost of their course.

Domestic full-fee paying places are available to Australian citizens, New Zealand citizens or holders of a permanent visa.

The annual course fee shown has been provided as a guide only. The actual fees charged by Deakin University, is based on the course a student enrols in and the study load (EFTSL) of the units undertaken. The EFSTL value of each unit offered in 2016 can be viewed from the Unit Search.

To calculate the cost of each unit you can multiply the course price by the EFTSL value of all units undertaken.

The course based fees may increase annually due to rises in the cost of course delivery and service.

Deakin assumes no responsibility for persons relying on these course fees to calculate the future cost of their course.
