Indicative tuition fee information for postgraduate courses (domestic students)

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.

Postgraduate course tuition fees are generally charged at the Full Fee or Domestic Fee Paying rate. Government and University funded scholarships and financial support may be applicable for certain postgraduate courses.

Some general fee information for coursework and research study is provided below.

We recommend you visit our Fees Calculator for a more comprehensive view of the cost of postgraduate courses and units.

Postgraduate by Coursework and Honours

We provide scholarships and awards to students enrolled in an Honours program or Master by coursework.

Scholarships generally have selection criteria, which must be met, and can provide financial support to assist you with education and living expenses.

Higher Degree by Research

At ECU, we are committed to undertaking high quality research and offer a number of scholarships to students undertaking a Doctoral or Master by research degree.

Research scholarships support Australian and New Zealand citizens and Australian permanent residents.

The Research Training Scheme provides tuition fee funding for students in selected research courses. Whilst you remain eligible for this scheme, you will not be required to pay for your tuition fees up-front, nor will you accrue a tuition fee debt for the duration of the course.

To be eligible you must be:

  • an Australian Citizen;
  • an Australian Permanent Resident; or
  • a New Zealand Citizen

Postgraduate Commonwealth Government Supported Courses

These courses are subsidised by the Australian Government. The Government contributes towards your tuition fees and you are responsible for the remaining tuition fees called your 'student contribution'. The rate of tuition fees changes annually for these courses.

Master of Computer Science

This course structure will be available to students commencing the course from Semester 1, 2015 onwards.

This course structure contains information about the units which comprise the course as well as the credit points required to successfully complete it.

Students must complete the programme outlined below. All semester enrolments are subject to unit availability and students must consult the Course Coordinator prior to enrolling.


Students in this course have the opportunity to seek a Work Integrated Learning placement with an industry partner equivalent to one semester of fulltime study. Such placements are available to students who have:

· Successfully completed any prerequisite units,

· Successfully completed at least two thirds of the requirements towards the degree and,

· Have a Weighted Average Mark (WAM) of 65% or higher across their course, or

· Have a WAM of 70% or higher for the two semesters preceding their application.

Students who meet these criteria and who wish to participate in Work Integrated Learning must apply in writing to their Course Coordinator by the end of the first year of the course (or PRIOR to enrolling in Project Preparation). Students should seek the advice of the Course Coordinator as to the appropriateness of pursuing the work placement option within their course structure and also as to their eligibility to be considered. Selection will be based on academic performance, the application and a formal interview process.

Successful applicants for work placement must enroll in and complete the requirements for the unit Work Experience Project (in place of Project Preparation, Project 1 and Project 2). This is a 60 credit point unit and represents a full semester’s study load. Students are advised NOT to enroll in any additional units while taking the Work Experience Project unit. Students should also note that failure to successfully complete Work Experience Project could necessitate completing Project Preparation/Project 1/Project 2 instead, which could add two extra semesters to the course duration.
