Tuition Fees

You can see the student tuition fees on the individual course page (see the links to courses above). The student tuition fees as published are subject to change given individual circumstances at enrolment.

The funding that is available is not a cash payment made to students, this subsidy will reduce your Tuition Fees with AIE upon successful completion of your studies. The subsidy will not cover all the Tuition Fees, but it will cover a significant proportion of your Tuition Fees. For the fees not covered by the JobTrainer subsidy, you can either apply for a VET Student Loan or a Payment Plan – those looking to apply for a VET Student Loan to cover the remaining fees will still be liable for any additional loan fees as per the VSL guidelines.

Subsidy rates may change from time to time at the Minister’s discretion hence AIE will not be held responsible for unpaid Tuition Fees. For further information in regard to the JobTrainer subsidy and amounts, please contact the Adelaide Campus at or on (08) 7325 6300.
