TAFE Queensland delivers a diverse range of accredited courses, many government-funded. Concessions or exemptions are available only on government-funded courses.
To claim a concession, students must present their Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card. Partners and dependants named on these concession cards are also entitled to reduced fees.
Full tuition and student service fee exemptions are available to students 17 years or under who are undertaking a government-funded qualification at TAFE as part of their senior studies.
Tuition fee reductions are also available for students of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent.
An application for fee reduction must be made at the time of enrolment.
Adult Community Education courses
TAFE Queensland provides a broad range of community and personal development courses through its Adult Community Education program. Concessions are offered on some of these courses.
A tuition fee exemption of 50 per cent may be available to:
- holders of a Pensioner Concession Card*
- Health Care Card holders
- a partner or dependant of a person who holds a Pensioner Concession Card or Health Care Card provided he or she is named on the card.
Where a student seeking to enrol in a government-funded course is experiencing extreme financial hardship, the institute’s director may exempt the student from tuition or student service fees.
Fee payment plans are available for many courses.
For application forms and further information, contact the enrolment centre at any TAFE Queensland institute. Or visit the TAFE Queensland website.
*To be eligible, the holder of the Pensioner Concession Card must be entitled to the maximum rate of pension.
