Fees

North Coast TAFE offers a wide choice of courses, some that attract government subsidies and some that do not. The fees payable will vary, depending on your personal circumstances, your study history and the course you choose.

Calculate fees

Your government subsidised fee, and your eligibility for concessions, exemptions and scholarships, are all calculated and confirmed during the enrolment process.

The 2017 subsidised fees indicated on this page are indicative only and based on 2016 fees. The state government may make some small changes to fees and subsidies for 2017 enrolments and we will update our site if and when that happens.

  • VET Student Loans

    What is a VET Student Loan?

    The Commonwealth VET Student Loans program has replaced the VET FEE-HELP loan program.

    This Commonwealth Government program allows you to access loans for approved courses by approved providers.

    The program also features loan caps for course loans. This means if your fees are above the loan cap, you will need to pay the difference. Most students/courses will not be affected by loan caps, but if you are, you will be advised of this during your enrolment.

    How does it work?

    The VET Student Loan program allows eligible students to repay their tuition loan fees for approved diplomas or advanced diplomas.

    You can either:

    • repay all your tuition loan fees (up to the loan cap limit) when your income reaches the repayment threshold, or

    • pay some of your tuition loan fees upfront and repay the balance when your income reaches the repayment threshold.

    Your loan is repaid through the Australian tax system when you reach the minimum income threshold for repayment. There is a loan fee of 20% for full fee-paying students.

  • Pay by instalments

    For many courses, you can choose to pay you course by instalment.

    Short courses (from 6 days to up to 10 weeks): 25% deposit required before starting the course with the remaining 75% due half way through.

    Most other courses: 25% deposit plus monthly payments due the last business day before the 15th of each month. The number of instalments available, up to a maximum of 12 (3 for concession fees), are calculated on the maximum duration of the course with final payment due 4 weeks prior to the end of the course.

    Find out more about the payment plans for courses less than 5 days, more details about fees and financial assistance, and the refund and withdrawals policy.
