Course fees

The enrolment fee for the Diploma of Governance is $4500, comprising tuition fee, assessment, portal support and administration. This fee is payable in full no later than 10 working days before commencement of the course.

As there is an expectation that all participants are committed to completing the assessment and receiving the Diploma, there can be no refund (partial or otherwise) if assessments are not completed.

Students will have access to reference materials via the student portal. Our sustainability policy precludes us from printing copies of these materials.

At this stage, there is no government fee assistance for this course; however, ICDA works with various partners to allow us to regularly offer part-payment and full-payment scholarships.

Bookings, cancellation and refunds policy

50% of the fee is refundable if notice of cancellation is received more than 10 working days prior to the start of the course.

No refund is available where notice of cancellation is received less than 10 working days prior to the start of the course. Substitution of attendees may be permitted. Written notice is required for cancellations and substitutions. It is not possible to transfer registration to other courses.


Our rolling part-scholarship program is open for applications, reducing fees by $1000 for successful applicants.
