This website will only help you determine whether you meet the citizenship or residency criteria and the prior study criteria for fees-free tertiary education. You are only able to receive Fees Free if you are enrolled in a fees-free eligible course or programme. Go to the eligibility criteria page for more information on eligible courses and programmes.

See the social media terms of use, for the terms of use relating to the Fees Free Facebook page.

Only your information

If you’re using the tool on this website to obtain confirmation of whether you’re eligible for some of your tertiary education fees-free, you may only enter your own personal information: your own national student number and, if we need to ask you additional questions, information concerning your own circumstances. One exception to this is where you are the parent, guardian or support person for someone. You may enter their information into this website on their behalf if you have their consent to do so.

Accuracy of information

By using the tool, we will advise you of your eligibility based on the information we hold about you. We may change your eligibility status if we become aware of other information relating to your eligibility, or if we determine that the information we relied on is incorrect.

You need to enter accurate information into this website and are not permitted to give answers to questions that, to your knowledge, are untrue. If you're unsure of how to answer a question, please feel free to contact us. Also, if you think that the information we hold is not correct, please contact [email protected]
