FAQ International - Finance

  • What about fees?

    Fees vary from course to course and depend on the services provided and activities completed during each semester of the course.

    The listing for each international course contains information on tuition fees as well as any additional fees that may be payable. Additional fees may include the purchase of course-specific textbooks, tools, uniforms, excursions, or for the management of non-tuition services. Additional fees will be detailed in your letter of offer. Costs for generic items, such as stationery, will not be listed.

    If you need to complete an ELICOS course before you start your formal qualification, you will need to pay ELICOS course fees as well.

    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 your student visa is issued. How much you pay for OSHC will depend on the length of your course and is shown on your letter of offer.

    More information on OSHC can be found on the Student visas & health cover page

    For further information, read the TAFE South Australia International student fees policy.

  • How can I pay my fees?

    You can pay your tuition fees by bank cheque, credit card (continuing students only) or telegraphic bank transfer.

    Your letter of offer outlines how to pay and will show you all the details that you need to pay your fees.

  • How do I know when to pay my next semesters fees?

    Two weeks before commencement of the following semester you will receive an invoice. This invoice will tell you when you need to pay your next semester’s tuition fee.

    If you do not receive an invoice go to the International Students Office and speak with the Finance Officer.

    Your tuition fee must be paid in full before the start of the next semester or you will not be able to attend your classes.

  • How do I pay my fees?

    You can pay your fees by credit card (continuing students only), electronic fund transfer or internet banking, or bank cheque.
  • What if I can’t pay my fees?

    Your fees must be paid in full as TAFE South Australia does not accept part payment of fees.

    If you do not pay your fees in full:

    • You will not be allowed to re enrol
    • You will not be allowed to attend classes and you will be marked as absent
    • You will not be able to access the computers or the network at TAFE South Australia
    • You will be reported to the Department of Home Affairs if you do not meet your student visa conditions for enrolment and attendance.
