Vocational Education (VE/TAFE) course fees

Vocational Education (VE/TAFE) course fees for domestic students vary based on a number of factors.

The most important of these is whether or not you enrol as a government subsidised or full-fee paying student. This determines the amount you pay, as well as the fee assistance you may be eligible to receive.

When you enrol in a course, re-enrol or change your enrolment, you will receive an invoice with the amount you are required to pay, and the due date.
