Course fees for international students

What you need to know

For studies commenced before 2016, Deakin's tuition fees are calculated on the units which you enrol in. This means your fees are based on the units you choose to study and not a fixed course price. For studies commencing from 2016, tuition fees will be based on the course you enrol in not the units being undertaken.

Different units/courses have different fees, which depend on how much each unit/course costs the University to provide. For example, units/courses which require laboratories or special equipment may cost more than units/courses which do not.

International students make an upfront course fee payment that is indicative based on historical enrolment patterns. The actual fees you will be charged may differ once you select your units.

Other fees and charges

You may also incur other fees and charges including textbooks, fieldwork costs and any excess internet usage charges. Also, check our frequently asked questions on international course fees.

Select your student type and find your study discipline(s) to find your course fees.

Please note the Annual course fees displayed above represent study undertaking on 1 Effective Full Time Study Load (EFSTL) basis. 

If you are undertaking D302 Bachelor of Vision Science/Master of Optometry the EFTSL undertaken each year is 1.5 EFTSL.  You will need to multiply the rate shown by 1.5 to determine your annual course cost.

Calculating your unit fee

Each unit you enrol in will have it's own EFTSL value.  To determine the cost of each unit the following calculation should be used:

Course fee x unit EFTSL value = unit price

For example
Joe is studying a A300 - Bachelor of Arts and undertaking unit ALR207 Media relations.  Joe's tuition fee for this unit will be $3,015.00.

$24,120.00 x 0.125 = $3,015.00
