Dates and fees

Fees change once a year so please confirm that you have the latest fee information.

English language course fee structure

All fees are given in Australian dollars.

There are also regular promotions and special offers. Tuition fee discounts may be available for:

  • Longer enrolments
  • Enrolment in a TAFE package (English plus a TAFE vocational or degree course)
  • Certain countries
  • Non-student visa holders.

If you enrol in English-only and within 6 months of completion decide to start a TAFE course, we will recalculate your English fees at a TAFE package rate and transfer the difference towards your TAFE course (not applicable with any other promotional offers).

The English preparation for High School program does not offer a fee discount.

Please contact us to ask if you are eligible for any reduced fees.
