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 has now passed through Parliament and will come into effect from 1 January 2021. The University is currently working through the proposal and impacts on students.
