There may be additional fees payable for class, texts, stationery, uniforms, equipment, excursions, field trips, or other costs specific to your course such as art materials, cooking or hairdressing kits.
Please review your selected course for additional fees in the international courses and fees list before applying. Any fees payable will be listed in your Letter of Offer.
English language course fees
If you need to complete an English Language Intensive Course for Overseas Students (ELICOS) before you start your formal qualification, you will need to pay the fees for the ELICOS course as well.
Tuition fee refunds
If your situation changes and you are unable to continue your studies as you had planned, you may be eligible to obtain a refund for your tuition fees. Refunds are subject to the timing of your request and to the TAFE SA International Student Tuition Fee Refund Policy.
It is an Australian Government requirement that student visa holders contribute to the Overseas Student Health Cover Scheme (OSHC). This cover must be paid before a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) is issued. The cost of the OSHC will depend on the length of the course and will be outlined in the Letter of Offer.
