The Faculty of Arts and Education is also a major teaching faculty with undergraduate and graduate programs in primary and secondary teaching, adult education and literacy, arts education, curriculum and administration studies, early childhood education,  language and literacy education, mathematics education, physical and health education, professional education and training, science education, social education, special educational needs, flexible, online and distance education, TESOL, TLOTE and workplace and vocational education and training.

Fees and charges

Fees for international students apply to persons living in Australia with Temporary Resident status, provided that there is no limitation on study and persons living abroad who are not Australian citizens and do not have Permanent Resident status in Australia.

Students applying directly to Deakin University are required to pay:

  • Tuition fees for 2015: $AUD 8,900 per trimester
  • Overseas Student Health Cover for 2015: $AUD221 per trimester.  This rate may increase each year.

Please note that tuition fees are likely to increase annually, and that if your program of study starts in one academic year and finishes in the next, the fee for the subsequent year will be the fee set by the University for that year.

These fees include tuition, Beach or Bush orientation trip, airport reception and transfer upon arrival, on going student support and academic transcript upon completion of trimester. The Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) is a compulsory Australian Government fee covering basic medical and hospital care.

The above fees do not include accommodation, travel, books and general living costs. The Study Abroad tuition fee is a flat fee regardless of the number of units taken. Fees for continuing students are assessed and invoiced before the beginning of each trimester and must be paid by the due date. Non-payment of fees will result in termination of enrolment. Fees for new students must be paid before a student visa can be issued. Students are advised to read Deakin's Fees and Refund Policy.
