A fee applies for most TAFE NSW courses and must be paid when you enrol. The amount you pay depends on the type of course you study, and on your personal circumstances. Please click on the Smart and Skilled link http://www.training.nsw.gov.au/smartandskilled/prices_fees.html to work out what you will pay for this course based on your personal circumstances. Depending on your personal circumstances, you may be eligible for a fee discount or fee exemption. Please contact 13 7974 for further information. If you do apply for a VET Student Loan you will need to have your Tax File Number (TFN) handy. If you do not have a TFN you can apply for one through most Australia Post outlets, and obtain a Certificate of Application for a TFN. Once you receive your TFN from the Australian Tax Office (ATO) you must contact your college so they can arrange for you to enter it into your VET Student Loan application.
