LCI Melbourne offers students an accessible, affordable and accelerated pathway to career-igniting qualifications. Our Bachelor courses integrate a superb learning environment and experience with a two-year program of study and a compelling price point with attractive scholarship opportunities for domestic applicants.

For both international and Australian applicants, these courses are the best-value and quickest route to an art/design or business/management Bachelor degree from an Australian institution. International students, please see our International Student Fees.

The indicative tuition fees listed below are based upon a student enrolling in 100% full time study load. The total cost will depend on the number of units enrolled in, per study period, over the course of the year.

Domestic Student Fee Conditions

  • Before enrolling, we encourage applicants to read LCI Melbourne's Policy on Tuition Fee Refunds in the Assurances section of this website.
  • Fees are billed per trimester (based on the number of units undertaken in that trimester)
  • Part-time students pay pro-rata fees. Please consult tuition fees for the units currently on offer.
  • Centrelink Payments: for Centrelink purposes, to be classified as a full-time student you are required to enrol in a minimum of a 75% load. Anything less than 75% load per trimester is deemed by Centrelink as part-time.


LCI Melbourne believes in supporting the next generation of creative visionaries. Our scholarship program aims to provide financial assistance and mentorship to help turn your dreams into reality.

Scholarship Support for Domestic Students

Domestic applicants will have the opportunity to qualify for a scholarship of $10,000 across the duration of their study ($5,000 per calendar year / $33.34 per credit). Award and maintenance of this scholarship is conditional upon students:

  • Enrolling as full-time students (i.e. minimum study load of 40 credits per trimester)
  • Maintaining ongoing continuous full-time enrolment for the duration of their course.
  • Maintaining a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.4 (on a scale of 4) or above per trimester. If the GPA drops before 2.4 in any given trimester, students will pay the full tuition the following trimester. Students can regain the scholarship by getting a GPA of 2.4 or higher in the next trimester.
  • Abiding by the LCIM Student Code of Conduct.
  • On invitation, participating in LCIM events, activities and promotions; LCIM has the right to ask you to contribute up to 100 hours of volunteer time over the course of the program.
  • Paying tuition fees on time.

Domestic students awarded and maintaining the scholarship would therefore pay $38,000 in total, or $19,000 per year for the course (or $126.66 per credit).

Indigenous Scholarship

All applicants of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island descent are entitled to the Indigenous Scholarship. The Indigenous Scholarship covers 25% of full-time tuition fees annually for students who are of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent. Please identify your status and provide proof of heritage via the direct application process to have this recognised.
