Concessions on Tuition Fees

This information applies to students undertaking training courses. For information on university course fees, see: StudyAssist​

Concession fees

Concessions are set at 20 per cent of the provider's published standard tuition fee. For example, if a provider usually charged a non-concession student $500 for a particular course, a concession student in the same course would only pay $100.

In general, concessions on tuition fees are available for government-subsidised training places in all courses below Diploma level and for training at any level, including at Diploma level and above, for Indigenous students.

Students undertaking training at the Diploma level and above may also be able to access financial assistance in the form of a loan, so they will not have to pay fees until they are employed and earning a certain level of income.

Eligibility for concessions

Concessions are generally available for:

Courses below Diploma level

Concessions on tuition fees for government-subsidised training places in courses up to Certificate IV are available to:

Indigenous students

Under the Indigenous Completions Initiative, Indigenous students pay only the concession tuition fee for training at any level, including at Diploma level and above.
