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.

The actual course fees charged by Deakin University, is based on the course and the study load (EFTSL) being undertaken. The study load (EFSTL) value of each unit offered in 2016 can be viewed from the Unit Search.

The fees per course/unit/credit point may be otherwise subject to an annual increase due to rises in the cost of course delivery and service.
