How much will my course cost?

Your tuition fees will vary depending on your course and the year you start. Our fees estimator tool will give you a better idea of your study costs. Remember, this is a guide only as tuition fees can change from year to year.

Calculate your fees

When do I pay my fees?

Before you enrol, you will need to make an upfront fee payment to Deakin to accept your offer. This information is in your Letter of Offer. This payment will be based on full-time enrolment. The actual fees you will be charged may differ once you select your units. When you make the payment, we issue you a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE). You can then apply for your student visa.

Accept your offer and pay

Defer your offer and pay later

We understand that sometimes plans change. You can defer your offer until you are able to pay your fees in full.

How to get a refund

Life can sometimes get in the way of study. We may be able to offer you a partial or full refund if you need to withdraw from a unit or your course.
