You are viewing indicative tuition fee information for domestic students. If you are an international student click here to calculate indicative tuition fees for your course.
Indicative tuition fees provided are estimates based on information available to Edith Cowan University at the time of their calculation and are presented as a guide for comparative purposes only. The fees which are ultimately applicable are subject to change. ECU makes no representations or warranties in relation to the reliability of these estimates or the methodologies used for their calculations.
I acknowledge that I understand that these tuition fees are indicative only and are subject to change.
Commonwealth supported: AUD $9,165.00
Domestic fee paying: AUD $18,500.00
There are two types of domestic tuition fees as displayed above. Read the following information to identify which indicative tuition fee amount may be applicable to you.
Under this arrangement, the Australian Government contributes towards your tuition fees and you are responsible for the remaining tuition fees, called your 'student contribution'.
You are eligible to be Commonwealth Supported if you are studying:
You must also satisfy ONE of the following criteria:
Please note that eligibility for a Commonwealth Supported rate of fees does not determine your eligibility for a Higher Education Loan Program (HELP) loan. For further details and to obtain a more accurate indication of fees, please use the Fees Calculator.
Domestic tuition fees (unsubsidised full fee amount) will be applicable to you if you are not eligible for a Commonwealth Supported Place.
Domestic tuition fees also apply to non-award courses (courses or programs that do not lead to a higher education award, but are studied for general interest, professional purposes, or to gain entry to a degree program through an alternative pathway). More about non-award courses.
We recommend you visit our Fees Calculator for a more comprehensive view of the cost of courses and units.
