Course sub-headings

Course overview

The Bachelor of Property and Real Estate (Honours) is a Research-based Honours Award and aims to produce graduates prepared for a career in global property and real estate industries. You will be equipped with an understanding of legalities, principles and processes required to fill a professional role in this field, and acquire an appreciation of professional ethics which emphasise responsibility and responsiveness to community needs. The honours year is available to high achieving students and is made up of 4 credit points of research training and 4 credit points of industry-based learning at an advanced level.

Professional recognition

This course is eligible for professional accreditation by the Australian Property Institute (pass or honours) and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (honours only). Graduates will be eligible for registration as a Certified Practising Valuer. The Facilities Management major sequence will lead to accreditation by the Facility Management Association.

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. Each unit you study has an EFTSL value. You can add these together to calculate your study load each year. Depending on enrolment, you may be enrolled in more than or less than the one EFTSL each year.

Commonwealth supported place (CSP)
Under the present legislation, a Commonwealth supported place is one for which the University receives some Government funding. Students enrolled in these places are required to contribute part of their course costs. To be eligible for a Commonwealth supported place you must be an Australian citizen, or New Zealand citizen or holder of a permanent visa who will be residing in Australia for the duration of your study.

Full-fee paying (FFP)
A full-fee paying place is one which the University does not receive any Government funding. Students enrolled in these places contribute the full cost of their course.

Domestic full-fee paying places are available to Australian citizens, New Zealand citizens or holders of a permanent visa.

Fee information for all domestic students
The current Federal Government has proposed a number of major reforms for the higher education sector (see the Higher Education and Research Reform Amendment Bill 2014), including fee deregulation in respect of domestic student fees. This legislation may be reintroduced to the parliament in the latter half of 2015 and if passed, will impact on the CSP and FFP course fees applicable in 2016.

* Therefore, the indicative annual course fee shown is 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 full-time study within the specified discipline. The 2016 CSP and FFP course fees may change if the Commonwealth Government's proposed fee deregulation and reforms legislation is passed.

The actual fees charged by Deakin University, will depend on the individual unit discipline 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 2016 can be viewed from the Unit Search. Should a change in Government policy affect the cost of units offered, the website will be updated as soon as possible.

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

This information is provided as a guide only. No representation is made that the information provided is current or accurate. Deakin assumes no responsibility for persons relying on indicative course fees to calculate the total future cost of their course. Applicants can email enquire@deakin.edu au for more information about 2016 fees.

Fee payment assistance
Australian citizens or holders of a permanent humanitarian visa, enrolling in a CSP or FFP, may be eligible for HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP respectively. For more information about HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP visit the Study Assist website.
