Comments about Master of Commercial Law (International Students) - On Campus - Melbourne - Victoria

  • Objectives
    Deakin’s Master of Commercial Law reflects the School of Law’s commitment to being a significant centre for teaching and research in commercial law. The course is available to graduates in any discipline who wish to complete a specialist qualification in commercial law. Commercial law is such a vast and constantly changing area that it is inevitably the domain of those with highly specialised expertise. The course aims to extend the influence of legal expertise beyond a narrow legal framework. In doing so, we seek to enhance the capacity of our graduates to deal with legal issues through an associated understanding of the broader corporate/policy issues. The course is designed for students who have a general interest in commercial law and those who wish to learn more about specific areas of law. Units cover key areas such as corporations law, income tax, international commercial law, internet law, corporate governance and trade practices.
  • Entry requirements
    Deakin University offers admission to postgraduate courses through a number of Admission categories. In all categories of admission, selection is based primarily on academic merit as indicated by an applicants previous academic record. The minimum requirements are successful completion of a three-year undergraduate degree, or equivalent, from an approved university or other educational institution or successful completion of other equivalent qualifications gained by examination, or approved professional or industrial experience. International students must also meet the English language requirements.

  • Course description
    Off campus studies
    International students can only undertake off-campus study while living overseas. Due to visa regulations, off-campus units are not available to international students studying in Australia, unless it is in addition to their full-time on-campus study mode.
    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.
