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 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.

Entry requirements - specific

Prospective students should note that selection as an Honours student depends not only on academic suitability, but also on the availability of a suitable supervisor for the research area, and the match of the research with the philosophy of nursing at Deakin.
Applicants will be required to have completed the Bachelor or Nursing, Bachelor of Nursing (Preregistration) or Bachelor of Nursing Studies (Postregistration) with at least a mid-credit average to be eligible for entry.
Applicants from other universities will be evaluated on an individual basis, but will be required to have completed a Bachelor of Nursing program and have achieved at least a mid-credit average to be eligible for entry.
No credit for prior learning will be given to applicants entering the honours sequence.  Students who have already completed substantial research should apply for the masters preliminary program rather than for honours.
