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 $6,044.00
Domestic fee paying: AUD $17,300.00

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.

Bachelor of Arts (Psychology)

This course structure contains information about the units which comprise the course as well as the credit points required to successfully complete it.

Generally, units in this course should be completed in year sequence (i.e., all first year units should be completed before proceeding to second year units, and all second year units should be completed before proceeding to third year units). Prerequisites must be adhered to and each of the research units must be taken in the exact sequence (i.e. PSY1102, PSY2202, PSY3303). Over the course of the degree students may not undertake more than 150 credit points at the first year level. Students must complete a minor OR a supporting major OR a second major plus electives unless undertaking a double major as described below.

DOUBLE MAJORS There are a number of optional double majors available for study within the Bachelor of Arts (Psychology). These include Children and Family Studies, English, Writing, and Youth Work. Students undertaking a double major with Psychology will complete 12 core Psychology units as well as the 12 core units in the other major. However, students completing a double major in Psychology and Writing or Psychology and English will complete 16 units of Psychology and eight units of English or Writing. Details of the core units are listed below. The completion of these double majors will be reflected on students' testamur and academic transcript. The Children and Family Studies Major is an option for students with an interest in early education and care, family support, parent education and policy and service development. Students studying a Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) may choose their Minor, Supporting Major, or Major from Social Sciences, Arts or Business. Psychology, with its focus on human behaviour, is ideally suited for study in combination with many other disciplines. Psychology also fits well with disciplines such as Philosophy, and has applications in emerging areas such as Marketing, Leisure, and Tourism. Students majoring in Psychology may wish to discuss their Minor and Elective program with the Course Coordinator or Student Information Officer.
