    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. If you are studying a graduate certificate of 4 credit points, your total course EFTSL is 0.5.

    * 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.


    Career opportunities
    The Master of Insurance and Risk Management program equips those seeking a career in the insurance industry with the necessary knowledge to enter the industry and also meet the legislative requirements necessary for those working in the industry. The program also allows those currently working in the industry to consolidate and upgrade their knowledge.

    Within the industry there are a wide range of areas in which careers can be developed. With Insurers this could be as an underwriter where you are analysing risks presented by insureds or in the management of claims. Careers can also be had with insurance brokers. An insurance broker is focused on establishing the client's needs and then developing an insurance program to meet those needs. Having done this they then market the program to insurers. A further career area is in risk management where you would form part of a companies risk management team. The team seeks to analyse the exposures faced by your company and devise strategies to minimise them or to meet the consequences should a loss develop.
