    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.
    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.


    Career opportunities
    As a graduate of the Bachelor of Construction Management you may find employment as a construction manager, estimator, planner and quantity surveyor in a building company or sub-contracting organisation. Opportunities also exist in the property and maintenance divisions of companies that are responsible for large property portfolios.


    Course rules
    In order to qualify for the degree, a total of 32 credit points must be completed satisfactorily. To satisfy the requirements of the Bachelor of Construction Management degree, a student must complete the units as set out in the course structure.

    Students will be required to complete 80 working days of industry-based experience to meet Australian Institute of Building professional requirements. Units SRM249 and SRM349 are available in place of elective units to satisfy this requirement.
