Fee freeze for courses starting 2014
The Federal Budget signalled a time of change and a degree of uncertainty for many, including University students. At Deakin, we are committed to providing education opportunities for all and recognise the need to provide fairness and certainty for those seeking to further their education and ensure there is no deterrent to pursue further studies.
As a result, we have introduced a freeze on fees for new Australian domestic undergraduate students enrolling in courses commencing in 2014. This means, if you enrol in an undergraduate Deakin course commencing in Trimester 2 or 3 2014, you will be subject to identical fee conditions as those who commenced in Trimester 1 2014. You will not face the predicted price increase in 2016.
This fixed fee provides our undergraduate students commencing in 2014 with clarity, allows them to plan financially for their future and sets them up for a positive learning experience.
Please note, the Federal Budget decision only impacts course fees for new Australian domestic undergraduate students*. Current undergraduate and postgraduate students and future fee-paying postgraduate students are not affected by course fee changes, therefore the fee freeze is not applicable to these cohorts.
* Postgraduate CSP students may be impacted by the Federal Budget changes, we are currently awaiting further details.
