How the Deakin Fee Freeze affects you

Now that midyear applications are closed, here's what you need to know about Deakin fees going forward.

"All our students deserve to have a clear understanding of the cost of their degree and studies"

– Vice-Chancellor Professor Jane den Hollander.

When the Federal Budget was announced this year, it left our current and future students with a lot of uncertainty. As a result, we introduced a freeze on fees for new Australian domestic undergraduate students enrolling in courses commencing in T2 and T3 2014, so that they are subject to the same fees as students who commenced in T1. 

Vice-Chancellor Professor Jane den Hollander said, "We believe this a fair and equitable approach to delivering on Deakin's response while waiting for confirmation of the Federal Budget. It also gives the University the time we need to make sensible decisions about what our future strategy must be as we deal with the Government cuts."

As the first Australian University to announce a Fee Freeze this year and the leader in student satisfaction amongst Victorian universities, Deakin will continue to put our students needs first. We also offer a range of pathways options, alternative ways that lead directly to studying at Deakin.
