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 $7,970.00
Domestic fee paying: AUD $14,800.00
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.
Indicative tuition fee information for WAAPA VET courses can also be viewed on the Fees Calculator.
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.
This course requires 360 credit points (24 units) to complete.
Students studying external to Joondalup campus should be aware that some units may require on campus attendance at an intensive workshop or placement in or outside the normal semester periods if equivalent practicum is not available locally. The program relies on the collaboration with health agencies for the provision of clinical experience. Students will be required to attend during the hours established by the clinical agency and these may occur at times outside the identified semester weeks and clinical practice periods may change with minimal notice to students due to circumstances outside the control of the School.
Should paramedicine become a registered profession to meet the requirements of the universities reporting obligation to the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), or any state registering body, names of students undertaking this course will be provided to AHPRA, for the purposes of student registration. For further information please see the AHPRA web site http://www.ahpra.gov.au/.
The paramedical science course has compulsory clinical placements held at healthcare providers. Prior to undertaking placements, students are required to have the pre-practicum checklist completed and signed off by the placement co-ordinator.
To be able to undertake clinical practice and fulfil their duty of care, students are required to complete risk management protocols on commencement of the course and carry out amendments in subsequent semesters as appropriate. Risk management protocols include, but are not restricted to:
Students will also be expected from their first year of study to initiate and develop a professional portfolio that maps their progression towards professional practice and the national paramedic competencies as articulated by the accrediting body. These can be found at http://caa.net.au/en/education/documentscorrected
The required learning outcomes in some of the compulsory practical/applied practice units in this course may not be readily achievable or appropriate for persons with certain disabilities or medical conditions. Whilst the university will attempt to make such adjustments as is reasonably practical, all students must fulfil the inherent requirements of the course which as described above are linked to professional and industry competencies. You are strongly encouraged to discuss the requirements of the course with the course coordinator before you seek enrolment.
