    Course Description

    This qualification is designed to reflect the role of conveyancers responsible for conveyancing work, team leadership and/or the management of a practice.

    Conveyancing is a licensed occupation. Licensing regimes for conveyancers differ between States and Territories in Australia. To determine the most appropriate pathway to satisfy licensing requirements within a particular State or Territory it will be necessary to contact the relevant licensing body for advice. Contact details for conveyancing licensing authorities are provided in the FNS10 Information Kit available on the IBSA website.

    Fee Notes

    When you enrol in a government-subsidised TAFE NSW course you will be required to pay the 'TAFE NSW fee' for the duration of that course, unless you qualify for a fee exemption or fee concession.

    The TAFE NSW fee is based on the qualification level.

    Other fee arrangements apply for commercial courses (fee for service), international students and temporary visa holders.

    If you are not a resident of NSW or working within NSW, fees may vary.

    Apprentices and Trainees who are registered in other States and Territories and are required to undertake training at TAFE NSW will continue to be eligible to access government subsidised training places.


    Australian Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, you are exempt from paying the TAFE NSW fee.

    Students who live and work in NSW and who receive a disability support pension and students with a disability (clients of a Teacher/Consultant for students with a disability) are exempt from paying the TAFE NSW fee for one TAFE NSW course enrolment per year (and are eligible for a $106 concession fee for each subsequent course enrolment in that year).

    To complete your enrolment, you will need to fill-in the 2014 TAFE NSW Fee Exemption application form and go to your chosen college.

    If your course runs for more than one semester in the same calendar year, you may have the option to pay your TAFE NSW fee in two equal instalments for that year. However you must make the first payment when you enrol.

    If your course takes more than one year to complete, you must pay the relevant TAFE NSW fee for each subsequent years/semesters in which you re-enrol.

    You may pay your TAFE NSW fee and any course related charges by EFTPOS, Visa Card, MasterCard, cheque or money order payable to TAFE NSW.

    TAFE NSW does not accept cash.

    Your enrolment is not complete until you have paid your TAFE NSW fee. Once you have done this, you will be entitled to receive an active TAFEcard, attend class, access library resources, sit for examinations, receive educational awards and use college amenities. You may also benefit from services including travel concessions and childcare places.
