Tuition Fees - Continuing Full-time Students

The student eligibility and entitlement information we will cover is based on our current understanding and some policy details could change based on final domicile-specific regulations coming into force.

This page explains the tuition fee support available to continuing full-time students. The amount they can get doesn’t depend on their household income.
