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 Criminology and Justice

This course is recommended for students with an interest in criminology, social justice and the justice system. It provides a comprehensive understanding of the nature of criminology and justice and the principal disciplines of law, political science, psychology and sociology, which inform criminological and justice related issues.

The course adopts a contemporary international approach to criminology and justice education and seeks to develop well-educated practitioners. Students gain a significant background in the contemporary theory and research that informs criminology and justice professions.

Students examine the nature of crime and social control, as well as a broad range of areas in the domain of justice, including policing, courts, law, corrections, family law and alternative dispute resolution. They also develop professional skills required for employment in criminology and justice, including Indigenous cultural responsiveness. This approach prepares students for positions of future leadership.
