The Master of Architecture provides students with specialist education, building upon an established background in architecture and built environment studies. It offers advanced studies in cultural, technological, design, environmental and theoretical knowledge, and develops the ethical, evaluative and research frameworks which underpin the architecture field.
The Master of Architecture degree has been designed to allow incorporation of the final units required to fulfill the academic requirements required for professional accreditation and registration of graduates.
Units in the course may include assessment hurdle requirements.
This course is accredited (within Australia) by the Australian Institute of Architects, the Architects Registration Board of Victoria and the Architects Accreditation Council of Australia.
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.
Graduates will be required to complete an additional two years of work experience under the supervision of a registered architect in order to present for registration with the Architects Registration Board of Victoria and the Australian Institute of Architects.
