Free TAFE for priority courses

The Gordon is part of the Victorian Government’s Free TAFE for Priority Courses initiative. This means the Government pays the tuition fees of selected courses for eligible students. 

Save thousands!

This is your opportunity to gain an in-demand qualification without facing financial hardship or incurring a long term debt.
If you’re considering university study, a number of the Priority Courses pathway to degrees. Check how much you could save (tens of thousands) by completing a TAFE qualification first and shaving time off your uni study time.

What’s free?

If you’re eligible, the initiative will cover the tuition fees for the duration of your course. You’ll still need to pay for other fees, such as student services fees or materials fees.

Who is eligible?

Whether you are eligible for Victorian government subsidised tuition fees is determined by your individual circumstances such as how old you are, what level of education you have and what type of course you wish to study. Eligible students can access this initiative only once. So, it is important that you consider your training choice carefully. 

Apply now!

Free TAFE courses are available to eligible students. Check out the list of free TAFE courses below and apply here.

In order to ensure that the training we offer is high quality and that students will be job-ready when they finish, there is a limit on places for some courses. Our website indicates where limits apply.
