Smart and Skilled introduces new fee arrangements

From 2015, Smart and Skilled introduces new prices and fee arrangements for government-subsidised courses. The NSW Government contributes to the cost of each course and the student pays the balance. Fees are for the whole course, rather than year-by-year. Your choice of training provider does not affect the fee you pay for any course. Fee exemptions and concessions are also available for disadvantaged learners.
