Get the skills you need, without the tuition fees

Skill up to get the job you want, thanks to the Victorian Government’s Free TAFE program. 

You can now access more than 80 Free TAFE qualifications and short courses without the cost of tuition fees, even if you already hold a VET qualification or degree. 

If you are eligible for Free TAFE, all your tuition fees will be covered by the Australian and Victorian governments.  There may be additional fees associated with some courses.  Please ask your preferred TAFE for specific information about additional costs, such as amenity fees, student services and any books or materials required for study. 

In addition to the Free TAFE courses the Victorian Government has provided since 2019, the Australian Government has announced an additional 300,000 Fee-Free TAFE and vocational education places, available nationally from January 2024. 

With more Free TAFE on offer there is no better time than now to kick-start your new career or to upskill. Check out the wide range of Free TAFE courses on this page and find a course that is right for you. 

Students who have completed any Free TAFE program can also access the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE) under Free TAFE. This is to encourage and support industry-qualified people to pursue a career in VET training.
