I don’t yet meet the residency criteria to be eligible for Fees Free – but part way through my course or programme, I will. Can I get Fees Free for study or training I do before I become eligible?

No. If you become eligible for Fees Free by meeting the residency requirements part way through a course or programme, you can’t access Fees Free for that course or programme. But you may be able to get Fees Free for any future study or training.

Note: Any tertiary study or training you do before you’re eligible will still count as ‘prior study or training’ for Fees Free eligibility. Learn more about prior study and training.
