I started Fees Free study/training in a prior year and am continuing study/training in 2023. Do I need to re-check my eligibility?

If you’re changing education types – yes. For example, if you did work-based learning in 2022 and want to do eligible provider-based study in 2023 you’ll need to check your eligibility against the provider-based criteria for 2023. This is because the eligibility criteria for provider-based and work-based learning are different.

If you’re doing the same type of education – no. For example, if you’re doing eligible provider-based study in 2022 and are continuing this in 2023, you don’t need to check your eligibility again.

If you’re not sure whether you need to re-check your eligibility for 2023 please contact us.

Please note that you will only be able to continue accessing Fees Free in 2023 if you have not already used your full entitlement. Check out 'If I did less than $12,000 worth of study in my first year of study, can I carry the rest over to another year?' for more information on carryover.
