* Domestic fee paying - estimated 1st year indicative fee

Research students who are Australian or New Zealand citizens, or permanent residents of Australia, may be eligible for a place under the Commonwealth Government's Research Training Program. The program covers your fees for the duration of your course and you can be studying in either full-time or part-time mode. Note: If you've been part of this program at another university or been studying a different research course, this will affect the amount of tuition support you receive here.

The 'Estimated 1st year indicative fee' is provided as a guide only, based on a typical enrolment of students undertaking the first year of this course. At ECU, you pay for the individual units you enrol in, not an overall course fee, so the total cost of your course will vary, depending on what units you choose. An indicative fee will be provided with your course offer, however you can use our Course Fee Calculator to estimate the amount you’ll need to pay. ECU fees are adjusted annually.

One of the best skills I obtained from undertaking this study was how to critically analyse situations and propose reasoned arguments in response.

Additionally, my writing skills enhanced significantly, giving me the confidence and ability to write substantial technical reports and proposals.

My qualification has certainly helped me obtain senior employment opportunities and progress to a State Manager level.
