Fees and charges
Commonwealth supported students (CSP)
Students who commenced their course before 1 January 2005 will be able to study under the current (indexed) student contribution levels until the end of 2009, unless they discontinue their enrolment without formally deferring or complete their course of study.
Fee paying students
For students enrolled prior to 2005, fees were calculated based on the fee rate applicable to the course in which they were enrolled. This fee rate was fixed for the minimum expected duration of the course, i.e. the minimum amount of time in which the course could be completed. This method of calculation will be maintained for continuing students (for the pre-2005 course only) unless the student has exceeded the minimum period for completion of the course.
From 2005 fees will be calculated on a per unit basis. Please note that the fees per unit/credit point may increase annually due to rises in the cost of course delivery and services.
Graduates are expected to find employment as property analysts, corporate real estate advisers, in property research, property sales and acquisitions, property finance, valuation, urban development, real estate agency (sales/learning), property and asset management and tenant and tenant advisory services.
