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.

Course Main Navigation

 

Bachelor of Education (Secondary)

Designed for students wishing to become secondary teachers of Biological Science, Design & Technology, Drama, English, Health & Physical Education, Home Economics, Mathematics, Music, Physical Science, Social Science and Visual Arts.

Students undertake core education units concurrently with units in their preferred areas of specialisation across the four years of the course, graduating with the flexibility to take up employment in both private and government secondary schools.

Central to the success of this course are the numerous opportunities that exist for students to make the connection between theory and practice through professional practice experiences. Partnerships between ECU and a diverse range of secondary schools allow students to gain the experience they need to become successful and confident teachers.

Another key feature is an emphasis on the use of Information Technology (IT) in learning and teaching. As well as gaining the professional knowledge needed to successfully incorporate IT into learning programs, teaching students develop their own IT skills, ensuring graduates are professionally prepared for teaching and have the confidence to promote student learning in new and innovative ways.

Students are required to complete practicum placement(s) as part of this course.
