Course sub-headings

Course overview

The Bachelor of Entertainment Production is a three year dedicated degree designed to provide students with the academic and professional skills necessary for employment in the field of entertainment production. The course bridges the existing gap between the traditional media-specific degrees that universities have long provided (in television and film production, as well as curatorial studies) and the exponentially expanding fields of new media and popular entertainment industries.

Fees and charges

Equivalent Full Time Student Load (EFTSL)
EFTSL is the standard annual full time load. Eight credit points is the standard full time load for one year of study.

Commonwealth supported place (CSP)
A Commonwealth supported place is one for which the university receives some government funding. As such, 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" cited 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 2015, and reflects the cost involved in undertaking a full-time quota of units within the specified discipline.
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 2015 can be viewed from the Unit Search.
Please note that 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.

As a graduate of the Bachelor of Entertainment Production you will be trained with industry- ready skills in producing entertainment and programming cultural events. Some of the graduates will also go into free-lance or own-business work with skills that will allow them to successfully adapt to a range of national and international work environments.
