Fees and charges
Fee paying place - International (IFP)
A Fee paying place is one for which the university does not receive any government funding. As such, students enrolled in these places are required to contribute the full cost of their course.
Fees for international students apply to persons living in Australia with Temporary Resident status, provided that there is no limitation on study and persons living abroad who are not Australian citizens and do not have Permanent Resident status in Australia.
Equivalent Full Time Student Load (EFTSL)
EFTSL is the standard annual full time load. Eight credit points is the standard full time load for one year of study.
* The 'indicative annual course fee' cited has been provided as a guide only. It has been calculated on the basis of a typical enrolment of a student undertaking the course in 2009, and reflects the cost involved in undertaking a full-time quota of units within the specified discipline.
The actual fees charged by Deakin University will depend upon the discipline from which each individual unit is chosen, and may vary from the indicative course fee cited, particularly if units are chosen from a number of disciplines. The cost of each unit offered in 2009 can be viewed at http://www.deakin.edu.au/current-students/handbooks2009/search.php.
Please note that the fees per unit/credit point may increase annually due to rises in the cost of course delivery and service.
Deakin assumes no responsibility for persons relying on 'indicative course fees' to calculate the total future cost of their course.
As a graduate of this combined course, you will possess some of the most important skills a student can gain at university - becoming expert at managing and effectively communicating knowledge and information. You will be well placed to enter a variety of employment fields combining a broad range of specialised skills with the kind of general skills employers want. Employers confirm that in the modern labour market these skills are often more relevant than those gained in vocationally oriented courses where specialist knowledge can quickly date. This is reflected by the fact that many graduate jobs do not require a specific degree.
The specialist majors in the Management degree can lead to careers in virtually every area of business and government in Australia and internationally. Broad career paths include being a systems professional, economist, financial planner, human resources manager, social and economic policy developer, international trade officer and marketing assistant/manager. As this is a very broad course, there are many other professions and further possibilities.
This combined course is comprised of 32 credit points of study. Students will undertake 16 credit points in the Bachelor of Arts and 16 credit points in the Bachelor of Management. Course requirements for both the Bachelor of Arts (A300) and the Bachelor of Management (M302) must be satisfied.
Within the 16 credit points required for the Bachelor of Arts a minimum of 4 credit points must be completed at level 3 and a major sequence as described under course A300 Bachelor of Arts must also be completed.
Within the 16 credit points required for the Bachelor of Management students will need to complete a core General Studies stream, made up of eight credit points chosen from a specified list, and a core Business Management stream made up of eight credit points chosen from a specified list. In addition students must complete at least four credit points at level 3 undertaken at Deakin University. All students are required to successfully complete at least one wholly online unit.
See course entry for Bachelor of Arts (A300) or Bachelor of Management (M302) .
Note: Students who commenced this course prior to 2008 should refer to the 2007 Handbook for the Bachelor of Management course details.
