Study abroad and exchange fees

Before applying to study at Deakin, you should talk to the study abroad office at your home institution.

You may be advised to apply directly to Deakin, apply through your home institution’s study abroad office or through a representative. The costs and services will vary depending on the option you select.

Applying directly to Deakin

If you’re advised to apply directly to Deakin as a study abroad student, there are set fees you’ll be required to pay.

Tuition fees for 2021 are:

  • Four credit points – A$10,720 per trimester
  • Three credit points – A$8,040 per trimester
  • Two credit points - A$5,360 per trimester
  • One credit point – A$2,680 per trimester

  • Overseas student health cover

    In addition to tuition fees, overseas student health cover (OSHC) for 2021 and 2022 is around AUD$350 per trimester.

    OSHC is a compulsory Australian Government fee that covers basic medical and hospital care for incoming international students.

    Failure to have continuous cover for the duration of your visa (as well as for any dependents you might be bringing to Australia) might result in your visa being cancelled.

    Students must make their first OSHC payment prior to being granted a student visa. Please note that some Belgian, Norwegian and Swedish students may be covered by health insurance provided by their governments and, as such, do not have to take out OSHC.
