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 $8,613.00
Domestic fee paying: AUD $14,350.00

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 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.

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

Bachelor of Science (Cyber Security)

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.

The course is made up of 360 credit points (24 units) of study. There are four electives in this course, two of which can be taken at any year level, but one of which must be at second or third year level. Students are otherwise required to complete all units listed below.


Students in this course have the opportunity to seek a Work Integrated Learning placement with and industry partner equivalent to one semester of fulltime study.Students should consult with their Course Coordinator at the commencement of their second year regarding Work Integrated Learning processes, timelines and requirements.

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 Week 9 of the Semester PRIOR to the intended placement. Students should seek the advice of the Course Coordinator well before this as to 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 CSI3345 Work Experience Project. 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 undertaking a Work Integrated Learning placement will enrol in CSI3345 Work Experience Project in place of CSG3303 Applied IT Project + 3 electives. Students should ensure that they have sufficient electives available towards the end of their course to make the Work Integrated Learning placement viable within their course structure.
