Fee Free TAFE and vocational education is a joint initiative of the Australian and South Australian Governments providing tuition-free training places to students wanting to train, retrain or upskill.
TAFE SA will provide more than 100 qualifications and skills sets free of tuition fees for eligible students that align to the state’s priority industry growth sectors and priority cohorts.
People from the following groups are strongly encouraged to apply:
Everyone is welcome to apply. Fee Free TAFE is intended for new students. Students need to be new to the course, not new to TAFE SA.
Fee Free TAFE places are available for students enrolling to start in 2023, subject to funding availability, and will remain free for eligible students for the duration of the course.
Additional courses are expected to become available under the Fee Free TAFE initiative in 2023 in surveying and local government. If you’d like to be kept informed about these courses and when they open for application, please register your interest here.
Please note, Fee Free TAFE covers the tuition fee of the course. Where applicable some courses may include additional fees such as a Resource Fee or Incidental Fee.
Any additional fees will be identified in course specific information.
