RMIT offers traditional trade apprenticeship and pre-apprenticeship programs that equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge for working on the job.
RMIT’s strong industry links will ensure that on completion you are highly skilled and employable.
The tuition fees you will pay depend on your program and whether you are offered a Victorian Government subsidised place or a full-fee place. Learn more about the eligibility criteria for a government subsidised place and fees for vocational study.
Reduced fees and fee assistance
You may be entitled to apply for a fee concession or exemption if you are in a Victorian Government subsidised place and you meet the eligibility criteria.
New VET Student Loans from 1 January 2017
You may be eligible for a capped loan under the Australian Government's VET Student Loans scheme. From 1 January 2017, this new scheme replaces VET FEE-HELP (VFH) loans. If you are commencing a new program after 1 January 2017 and you meet the eligibility criteria, you will need to apply for a VET Student Loan.
Find out more at the Australian Government VET Student Loans webpage.
If you currently have a VET FEE-HELP loan and you are continuing your program in 2017, the Government will give you the option to continue to access VFH until 31 December 2017, or to apply for the new VET Student Loans program.
For more information, refer to VET-FEE-HELP and VET Student Loans.
Student services and amenities fee
In addition to tuition fees, you will be charged a student services and amenities fee (SSAF), which is used to maintain and enhance services and amenities that improve your experience as an RMIT student.
You may be required to purchase other items related to your program, including textbooks and equipment. These additional fees and expenses vary from program to program.
