TAFE NSW enrols a large number of Aboriginal students, and will provide specialist support to assist you to successfully complete your course.

We also liaise with local communities to provide customised courses and services.

Financial help

If you're eligible, you may be exempt from paying the student fee. You may also be eligible for ABSTUDY – government financial help for Aboriginal students – from Centrelink. 

You can find out more from the Centrelink websiteTalk to staff at your chosen campus to find out more about fee exemptions and concessions.

Who can I contact?

For more information, talk to an Aboriginal Support Officer or Coordinator at your local Institute or campus.
