More about fees and other costs
Through the Victorian Training Guarantee, eligible vocational education students can apply for a Government subsidised place.
For students enrolled in a Government subsidised place, this training is delivered with Victorian and Commonwealth Government funding.
RMIT offers vocational education places on a full-fee basis for students who are not eligible for a government subsidised place.
A vocational education full-fee place is a place at RMIT that receives no financial contribution from the Victorian Government. The fees cover the full tuition cost of a program.
In addition to tuition fees, you will be charged an annual student services and amenities fee (SSAF), which is used to maintain and enhance services and amenities that improve your experience as an RMIT student.
The SSAF is calculated based on your enrolment load and the maximum fee for 2017 is $294.
For more information about calculating your actual SSAF see Paying SSAF.
