Commonwealth Supported Places

ECU offers Commonwealth Supported Places to students who are Australian Citizens, Permanent Residents, holders of a Permanent Humanitarian Visa and New Zealand Citizens. This means that the Government contributes towards your tuition fees and you are responsible for the rest, which is your student contribution.

If you are an Australian Citizen or the holder of a Permanent Humanitarian Visa, you are also eligible to access the HECS-HELP scheme which allows you to defer your fees until your taxable income is above the minimum threshold for compulsory repayment. Alternatively, Australian Citizens can pay for units of study in a given teaching period by census date and receive a 10% discount.

The following courses are Commonwealth Government Supported for 2014:
