VET FEE-HELP is a loan scheme to help pay your tuition fees for higher-level vocational education and training courses such as diplomas, advanced diplomas and graduate vocational qualifications.
TAFE Queensland receives your tuition fees from the government and you repay your loan through the Australian tax system. When your income reaches the repayment threshold, you start making repayments until you have repaid the whole loan amount.
VET FEE-HELP is only for tuition fees, and doesn't cover additional study costs such as your text books, materials and accommodation.
For more information please visit the VET FEE-HELP page.
If you are paying upfront, course fees are paid at the time of enrolment.
If you have been approved for a payment plan you'll pay your fees in installments. The frequency and amount will depend on your individual payment plan.
Everyone loves a good discount and there are a range of subsidies provided to eligible TAFE Queensland students. Please refer to our section on Financial Support and Student Loans for further information.
