    Not as such but some courses qualify for concession like cheaper. Also look into adult general education courses they're generally cheaper and give you pathways into other study areas

    Look into OTEN. It's run by Tafe do is eligible for the normal Tafe concessions.
    They have a reasonable range of courses as well

    I got my course paid through Vet-Fee help, it is like HECS which you have for uni, and you only pay it back if your income goes above a certain threshold, and luckily for me my income will never get that high so it will die with me.
