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

We are unable to display fee information for the selected course at this time. Please visit our Fees Calculator to view the cost of undergraduate courses and units.

Two kinds of domestic tuition fees are explained below. Identify which indicative domestic tuition fee 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 comprehensive indication of tuition 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.

Bachelor of Performing Arts

Major In Performance Making

Focuses on the creation of performance from the early stages of creative development through to final performance for an audience.

This major offers students the opportunity to experience performance making in the contexts of solo work, collaborative ensembles and site-specific locations and in both text-based and more visual of physical styles of work. In a final independent project, students work in small pre-professional companies to conceive, research, rehearse and produce their own performance.

Historical context units help students build up knowledge and understanding of the roots of contemporary performance practice in traditional theatre, dance and performance. There is a particular focus on the twentieth century developments in practice, philosophy and theory of performance and how those developments inform the current landscape of experimental performance.
