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 $10,085.00
Domestic fee paying: AUD $16,800.00

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.

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.

Students should check with the School of Law and Justice to determine which elective units are offered by the University in any semester, the mode of delivery (on-campus/off-campus), and any pre-requisites before enrolling.

Unspecified Law electives, based on previous studies under a recognised LLB course, may be credited towards the above course upon approval from the course coordinator and in accordance with the University's rules and policy on advanced standing.

HONOURS An undergraduate law student, who has not more than 120 points of study left to complete to qualify for a Bachelor of Laws degree and who has achieved a weighted average mark of not less than 70% across previously completed Bachelor of Laws units, may be eligible to graduate with Honours. Eligible students must complete LAW4710 - Advanced Legal Research Thesis in lieu of 30 credit points of law elective units.Completion of LAW4710 does not guarantee a student will receive a Bachelor of Laws (Honours). Except as otherwise provided, the policy Management of Honours Candidature, Grading of Honours Performance and Student Support applies. The Honours grade will be based on both completed units within the Bachelor of Laws degree as well as LAW4710. The coursework and dissertation mark are combined in proportion to the credit point values in determining the overall mark and honours grade. There is no third class honours.
