Undergraduate domestic fees

The tuition fees you pay to study at Deakin as a domestic student depend on whether you have a Commonwealth supported place or a fee-paying place.

How much will I pay?

As a domestic undergraduate student, you'll be enrolled in either a Commonwealth supported place (CSP) or a fee-paying place. Depending on which kind of course you're enrolled in, you'll pay a different amount towards the cost of your tuition fees.

On 19 June 2020, the Australian Government announced the Job-ready Graduates Package, which proposes higher education funding reforms impacting students enrolled in Commonwealth supported places. This proposal is currently in draft legislation stage and is available for public consultation. Subject to the passage of legislation, the proposal will come into effect from 1 January 2021. The University is currently working through the proposal and impacts on students.
