For studies commenced before 2016, Deakin's tuition fees are calculated on the units you enrol in. This means your fees are based on the units you choose to study and not a fixed course price.

Different units have different fees, which depend on how much each unit costs the University to provide. For example, units which require laboratories or special equipment may cost more than units which do not.
