Cloud (online) studies
Deakin offers many courses which can be studied by distance education overseas.
However, international students living in Australia must, in each compulsory trimester (that is, Trimesters 1 and 2), enrol in at least one unit that is offered as a Campus located unit and can, in addition enrol in units offered via Cloud (online). International students are not permitted to do more than 25% of their total course via Cloud (online) learning. Best practice is to enrol in mostly Campus located units in each compulsory trimester.
In a non-compulsory trimester (Trimester 3), international students may study Cloud (online) units only.
Fees and charges
Fee paying place - International
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 actual course fee charged by Deakin University, is based on the course and the study load being undertaken. The annual fee above is based on eight credit points (which equals one Equivalent Full Time Study Load - EFTSL). If your study load for the year is less than or more than eight credit points, your fees will be adjusted accordingly. To calculate the fee for each unit, take the applicable course fee above, divide it by eight, then multiply it by the credit point of the unit you are studying. To find the credit point and EFTSL value of each unit, go to the Handbook Unit Search.
This 'Fee paying annual fee' is provided as a guide only. The actual course fee charged by Deakin University, is based on the course and the study load (EFTSL) being undertaken.
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.
No representation is made that the information provided is current or accurate. Deakin assumes no responsibility for persons relying on indicative course fee to calculate the total future cost of their course. Applicants can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about 2016 fees.
To complete the Graduate Certificate of Human Resources, students must attain a total of 4 credit points of core units. Most units (think of units as 'subjects') are equal to 1 credit point.
