Fees and charges
Equivalent Full Time Student Load (EFTSL)
EFTSL is the standard annual full time load. Eight credit points is considered a standard full time load for one year of study. Each unit you study, has an EFTSL value. You can add each EFTSL together to calculate your study load for each year.
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.
The annual course fee shown has been provided as a guide only. The actual fees charged by Deakin University, is based on the course a student enrols in and the study load (EFTSL) of the units undertaken. The EFSTL value of each unit offered in 2016 can be viewed from the Unit Search.
To calculate the cost of each unit you can multiply the course price by the EFTSL value of all units undertaken.
The course based fees may increase annually due to rises in the cost of course delivery and service.
Deakin assumes no responsibility for persons relying on these course fees to calculate the total future cost of their course.
