  • Indicative Fees

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 $6,472.00
Domestic fee paying: AUD $15,750.00

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 Social Work

Provides a professional education in the field of social work, after which graduates are eligible for membership of the Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW).

The course develops the students' ability to work within a complex, uncertain and contested social work practice environment by developing their professional competencies. Students undertake studies in social work theory, research, politics, policy, law and ethics, with particular reference to the relevance of this knowledge to practise in urban, regional, rural and remote settings.

The curriculum is designed to develop social workers who are able to understand and meet the Practice Standards for Social Workers (AASW, 2003).

This course is Commonwealth Government Supported for eligible students.

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

Non-Standard Timetable Information (e.g. early start, weekend courses, etc)
