Financial Assistance

Getting Started

Each year, TAFE NSW sets a schedule of affordable government subsidised fees, across the range of its courses and qualifications – from Statement of Attainment and Certificate level courses to Advanced Diplomas.

TAFE NSW also offers concession fees and exemptions from the enrolment fee for courses where the TAFE NSW fee applies. Some courses may have additional charges which cover the cost of practicals, consumables or basic tools related to your study.
