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

Tertiary study done as part of a school programme, such as through the Student Tertiary Alignment Resource (STAR), is not counted as prior study. However, if you do tertiary study separate to a school programme in 2019 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.
