Free TAFE = Great savings!

Victorian students have an excellent opportunity to reduce the cost of their studies through the Free TAFE initiative. 

If you’re an eligible Victorian student and choose to use your one Free TAFE course, you will not incur any tuition fees. Material and resources fees will still apply. 


To access the Victorian Government Subsidised Fees, you must reside in Victoria.
The standard Skills First eligibility criteria apply to Free TAFE. Eligible Victorian students can access this initiative only once. Check the eligibility criteria here.

Apprentices and trainees

Apprentices and school-based apprentices are not eligible for Free TAFE. Trainees completing an approved Free TAFE traineeship are eligible if they meet the Skills First eligibility criteria.

Eligibility exemptions

The standard Skills First eligibility criteria apply to Free TAFE, but the following exceptions are available for some courses;

  • No up-skilling requirement and no ‘two at a level in a lifetime’ limit
  • Students can only enrol in one Free TAFE course. 

Courses and Applications
