Is there a Cost involved?

Students studying under Smart and Skilled are encouraged to contribute toward their future and their training and this is called the ‘Student Fee’. The student fee charged is a set price for each qualification no matter who you study with but it may vary depending on your circumstances. You may also be eligible for a Concession, an Exemption or a Fee-Free Scholarship.

When you enquire with us about Smart and Skilled, we will advise you of your eligibility for an exemption or concession toward the student fee and tell you exactly what you will need to pay or whether you may qualify for a Fee Free Scholarship.

If you need to contribute to your training, you do not need to pay the student fee upfront, we will calculate the fee for you and negotiate a flexible payment plan with you.
