Brite offers both government subsidised and fee-for-service (non-government subsidised) training places.
As of 1 January 2019, Brite no longer charges tuition fees for government subsidised training.
What are the differences between government subsidised and fee-for-service training places?
Government subsidised training places attract a subsidy from the government that pays for your training fees (tuition fees). You must meet set criteria to be eligible for a government subsidy and provide acceptable evidence to support this.
Fee-for-service training (also known as non-government subsidised training places) is for students who do not meet the eligibility requirements for government subsidy or fee
Payment options: Study Loans is a new kind of finance for students seeking assistance in paying for their vocational tertiary education.
