Fees and Charges

The Victorian Government wants to make TAFE training more accessible to people who do not have a post school qualification or who want to gain a higher level qualification than they already have obtained.

Your fees for studying at South West TAFE may differ from individual to individual and are largely dependent on specific factors such as your age, course classification and any qualifications you already hold. Generally, fees at South West TAFE consist of three components: tuition fees, general service fees and material/incidental fees. For information on individual circumstances please speak customer service at any of our campuses or refer to our website.

All fees and charges referenced in relation to South West TAFE courses are in Australian dollars ($AUD).

The student tuition fees and course information as published are subject to change given individual circumstances at enrolment and/or changes in government policy.

Tuition fees: Tuition fees are based on the course in which you are enrolling. The tuition fee is calculated by multiplying the student contact hours by the fee set for each course (and rounded to the nearest dollar amount) for the academic year.
If you are not eligible for a government subsidised place, your tuition fee is set by SWTAFE and is calculated on the student contact hours.

General service feeThe general service fee is an Institute set fee which is collected to fund a range of support services and amenities to students both on and off campus. The general service fee is calculated by multiplying the student contact hours for the academic year by $0.45; with a maximum fee of $288. Concessions can be applied to the general service fees for all courses when paying at the government subsidised rate. Students enrolling through off campus will be charged a maximum rate of $55 per calendar year.
