I did some tertiary study while I was still at school. Does this count as prior study or training?

If you have undertaken tertiary courses as part of your school learning programme, or secondary-tertiary programme on, or after 1 January 2019, your tertiary courses won’t count as prior study or training.

However, if you do tertiary courses separate to your school learning programme, you will start using your fees-free entitlement as a part-time tertiary student.

If you have questions about your eligibility, including prior study or training, please contact us at [email protected] or 0800 687 775.
