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 Laws Bachelor of Arts

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 Bachelor of Laws (LLB) and Bachelor of Arts (BA) program consists of 720 credit points (48 units) and requires five years of full time study or the part time equivalent.

Course Credit Points Units
Bachelor of Laws - Core units 330 22
Bachelor of Laws - Elective units 150 10
Bachelor of Arts - Core units 60 4
Bachelor of Arts - Major 120 8
Bachelor of Arts -Minor 60 4
TOTAL 720 48

Bachelor of Arts Component

Student must complete 240 credit points (16 units) comprising the following:

  • Foundation program of 45 credit points (3 core units)
  • 120 credit points Arts Major (8 units)
  • 60 credit points Arts Minor (4 units)
  • 15 credit points final semester capstone unit

The Bachelor of Arts has been designed with great flexibility, to provide students with an excellent range of choices whilst still maintaining a coherent program. The selection of units within the program is subject to availability, and normal University and Faculty Rules. This flexible approach does mean that students need to take great care in selecting an individual program of study which fulfils the course requirements. Additional notes and requirements relevant to choices are given below, but students are advised to consult with the School Student Support Officer or the relevant Course Coordinator in planning their course.

Additional notes and requirements

  1. When a unit is found in two different major or minor lists and a student wishes to complete both majors/minors, the double-listed unit may be credited in only one major or minor. An alternative unit must be completed to meet the requirement of the other major/minor, with the approval of the course coordinator.
  2. Not all units are offered each year and, where applicable, choice must be made from those timetabled in a given semester. Most upper level units are offered in a two year rotation but some individual units may be offered less frequently at the discretion of the School.
  3. The majority of units in the Bachelor of Arts are only offered on the Mount Lawley campus. Details are published in the University timetable for the appropriate semester. A double degree student is able to complete any of the majors offered within the Bachelor of Arts within timetabling constraints.
  4. The University’s timetable is developed on a three-year grid to ensure avoidance of clashes over the course of a three year degree. Given the five year span of the double degree and the range of choice available in all the Arts majors offered, students will have no problem enrolling in sufficient units to complete their chosen major.
  5. The double degree requires enrolled students to undertake an overload of one unit in each of four semesters. The overload represents standard and accepted practice in similar double degrees offered by Western Australian universities.

Bachelor of Laws Component

A student must complete units to a total value of 480 credit points (32 units) comprising of 330 credit points (22 units) of compulsory core units and 150 credit points (10 units) of elective units.

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.
