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 Arts (Arts Management)

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 course will be available full-time (three years) on the Mount Lawley campus. The course comprises 20 units worth 15 credit points each and 2 final units worth 30 credit points each, totalling 360 credit points.


Third year students select one Elective Study unit from a range offered by other ECU faculties. Students may select this elective from an approved list (which will cover key business management areas such as marketing, management, finance etc). Students will be able to apply to do an elective not on the list with the approval of the course coordinator. Students may claim an exemption from the Elective Study unit on the basis of other tertiary qualifications.


First year students will demonstrate their understanding of theory through staffing Front of House for WAAPA productions.

Second year students take on the management roles of Front of House and are also encouraged to become involved in community and professional activities.

Third year students in semester one are required to gain experience with professional companies.

In the final semester, students undertake their Industry Placement with a professional arts organisation. This is a full-time, ten week placement which is designed to synthesise theory and practice and to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and skills acquired over the previous five semesters. It also provides a transition period that is a practical preparation for the workforce.
