The cost of a course depends on the number of hours nominated for each unit of competency and the rate per hour charged. There are different rates according to eligibility for government subsidies and the type of study. Indicative costs of each course can be determined on each course page. Government subsidies are available to residents of South Australia.
Students studying at TAFE SA will need to think carefully about managing course costs and organise funds for payment.
