Course sub-headings

Course overview

The Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Laws combined degree will give you a sound understanding of the context in which the law operates in the business world.

 

The course opens up specific opportunities in business law, perhaps the most prestigious and highly rewarded area of legal practice, and one in which a sound background in both business and legal studies can be so crucial.

 

The Bachelor of Laws component of the course provides innovative and distinctive legal education, emphasises a case study approach.

 

Studying commerce at Deakin allows you to gain a sound foundation in key business disciplines and offers you access to an array of specialist business courses, which give you opportunities in virtually every area of business and government, in Australia and overseas.

 

The Faculty of Business and Law is responsible for this combined course which leads to the awards of Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Laws.

Fees and charges

Fee paying place - International (IFP)
A Fee paying place is one for which the University does not receive any government funding. As such, students enrolled in these places are required to contribute the full cost of their course.

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.

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.

* 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 2014, 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 2014 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.
