Academic Calendar 2016 - 2018

Tuition fees

Tuition fees are subject to annual review. Domestic students pay the tuition fee per subject that applies to the year of enrolment in that subject and not the fee that applied in the student's first year of enrolment.

Schedule of tuition fees for domestic students

International student tuition fees can be found on the TAFE NSW International website.

Recognition of prior learning

Students who have completed other studies in a related field or who have extensive relevant industry experience may be eligible for exemption from similar subjects.  All applications for exemption must be made to the course coordinator and must include supporting documentation. Students should attend class until they are formally advised that their application for exemption has been granted.


TAFE NSW Higher Education has a range of policies and procedures relating to assessment, academic conduct, progression, exclusion, graduation, tuition fees and student grievances.

Download the Students' Guide to Higher Education Policies or access all TAFE policies here.


The forms below are governed by TAFE NSW Higher Education policies and procedures. It is always advisable to talk to your course coordinator if you are thinking of withdrawing or before changing your study pattern.

Other forms directly related to your studies (eg: assessment cover sheet, request for an extension, request to review an assessment result, etc) should be downloaded from your course Moodle.
