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.

First year indicative tuition fees for 2014 undergraduate courses (domestic students)

Commonwealth supported: AUD $6,870.00
Domestic fee paying: AUD $19,150.00

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.

Commonwealth Supported Place

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:

  • a Bachelor's degree;
  • an Associate Diploma;
  • an Honours degree; or
  • selected Commonwealth Government Supported postgraduate courses.

You must also satisfy ONE of the following criteria:

  • You are an Australian Citizen.
  • You hold a Permanent Humanitarian visa.
  • You are a New Zealand Citizen and you are living in Australia whilst studying.
  • You hold an Australian Permanent Residency visa and you are living in Australia whilst studying.

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 Fee

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.

Indicative tuition fee information for WAAPA VET courses can also be viewed on the Fees Calculator.

Bachelor of Creative Industries

Major In Screen Studies

Prepares students for employment in digital production for the screen. This major concentrates on the key positions of producer, director, scriptwriter, cinematographer, editor, sound and production designer.

The program provides a strong theoretical and analytical foundation, the opportunity to take electives in areas that will enhance the student's specialisation and an intensive production program in a variety of formats and genres. These include film and multicam drama, documentary and client-based productions including music videos and television commercials.

Students develop skills in digital production and post-production techniques as well as associated web-based content.

The program makes significant use of its strong links to industry and the professional community to engage with and mentor students. Many professional and community partnerships have been established to ensure students, academics and the members of the industry work together to share ideas, knowledge and expertise, and collaborate on the industry-focused projects that form a significant component of the teaching program. Components are delivered in cooperation with the WA Academy of Performing Arts.

Non-Standard Timetable Information (e.g. early start, weekend courses, etc)

This is a unique, intensive, one-year program that compresses 3 semesters of study into a 10 month (40 week) period, beginning in the second week of February and ending in the last week of November. Please contact the School of Communications and Arts for a detailed schedule.
