Fees and charges
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.
The Commonwealth supported place (CSP) indicative course fee shown in the table above 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 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.
Full-fee paying place
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.
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 four credit points (which equals 0.5 Equivalent Full Time Study Load - EFTSL). If your study load for the year is less than or more than four credit points, your fees will be adjusted accordingly. The credit point and EFTSL value of each unit can be viewed by looking up your units in the Handbook Unit Search. To calculate the fee for each unit, take the applicable course fee above, divide it by four, then multiply it by the credit point of the unit you are studying.
Fee information for all domestic students
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.
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 fee to calculate the total future cost of their course. Applicants can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about 2016 fees.
Eight credit points is considered a standard full time load for one year, which equals one Equivalent Full Time Study Load - EFTSL. If you are studying a graduate certificate which is normally four credit points, your total course EFTSL is 0.5. The annual fee displayed for this course is based on four credit points.
Fee payment assistance
Australian citizens or holders of a permanent humanitarian visa, enrolling in a CSP or full-fee paying place, may be eligible for HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP respectively. For more information about HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP visit the Study Assist website.
