Some of the details explained…
This course is subsidised by the NT Government. The NT subsidy applies to eligible domestic students living in the NT and is subject to available places. The full fee will apply when funded places have been filled and for students that are ineligible for the NT Government subsidised rate.
**What this means is that students who live in the NT while undertaking this course are eligible for a subsidized place. As this course is held on-campus and as such all students enrolled will be in the NT for the duration of the course, all students are eligible for the subsidized place! That means, if you move to the NT temporarily for this course, you will be eligible (but not guaranteed a subsized place).**

Persons who currently receive Centrelink benefits may be exempt from course fees.
Air-conditioned accommodation is available which includes all meals and a laundry service twice a week. Contact the team for current pricing. Students must be 16 or older to reside on-campus, and students under the age of 18 must have permission from a parent or guardian.
