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 $7,391.00
Domestic fee paying: AUD $16,350.00

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.

This 360 credit point degree consists of:

1. A core program consisting of 60 credit points (four units), including a final semester capstone unit);
2. A Major program consisting of 120 credit points (eight units) in the areas listed above.

The remaining units in this degree (180 credits) follow EITHER Pattern 1 OR Pattern 2:

3. Pattern 1 consists of:
o A second Major programme in the School of Communications and Arts of 120 credit points (eight units)
o A supplementary programme in the School of Communications and Arts and/or the wider University of 60 credit points (four units, comprising either a Minor or four electives)

* PLEASE NOTE: In the Bachelor of Arts (Y69), the Visual Arts major is an expanded programme comprising sixteen units. Students who undertake this 240 credit point Visual Arts major are not required to undertake the second specialisation programme or the supplementary programs as listed above. Instead, they will achieve 360 credit points by completing the four core units (including the capstone unit), the 240 credit point Visual Arts major, and 60 credit points (four units) consisting of EITHER four electives OR another 60 credit point Minor. Note that there is also an 120 credit point Visual Arts Studio major available as a second major to other students in the School.

Whatever pattern students choose:

  • no more than ten of the units studied should be at first year level;
  • at least four units must be at third year level;
  • it is recommended that students select units from their chosen major(s) in the first and second semesters of enrolment.

RECOMMENDED TRANSDISCIPLINE ELECTIVES Students who elect to take any of the units below will attend seminars in the first half of semester, focus on theoretical and thematic ideas (the curriculum), learning to process theoretical articles through précis- and essay-writing. Students then will devise a negotiated project, to be completed independently in the second half of the semester, marked by the appropriate academics. Flexible assessment for learning means that students might work within across disciplines, that is, either with a traditional discipline-based project, across disciplines, or even in collaboration with other students in a single discipline or transdisciplinally.
